"Art I," the “cornerstone” of the program builds upon the students’ existing abilities in Art while exploring a wide-range of concepts, history and media though artwork, discussions, reading assignments, research, presentations and written papers. Students in Beginning Art will need to show the ability to learn and explore independently and in small groups. Students will be able to move with more freedom than in most of their middle school art experiences. With that freedom comes hard work and responsibility.
Students will need to join our class in Edmodo.com . Edmodo will have all the information and notes for all their units throughout the year. They will be responsible for reading, watching note-taking and participating on Edmodo at home and occasionally in class. It's highly recommended that parents join Edmodo so they can keep track of assignments and notes. While Edmodo has a grading option in it's assignments, we do not use that option to grade students and it will not be an accurate way to evaluate progress.
