Art Syllabus and Information

Studying art and art history, elements and principles of art and design, as well as creating studio projects are ALL essential to a well-rounded middle school art experience. Embrace all of it and allow it to add to your life experience. Art will foster your creative thinking and problem solving skills, fine motor skills (how well you can use your hands) and increase your awareness of others and your surrounding world. Art is on your shoes, your clothing, your backpack and all around you. Someone designed your clothing. Someone drew and designed the building/room in you which you sit presently; someone designed where you live and the apps on your phone. It is everywhere! Whether you seek to become a better artist or just gain a greater understanding of art and its language and historical components, I am here to help you attain those goals.

Sketchbook: Students will have one drawing due per week, which will not be accepted after Friday each week. Students will receive a weekly sketchbook grade for each assignment completed, graded for accuracy and “full page” specifications. (50 points per week) These will be done outside of class this year for “off days” while on A/B Schedule, or in class when we transition to all being in class full time.

Tests: Students will have tests on Elements of Art and Principles of Design.

Projects: Projects will vary in point value. They will be graded by criteria which will be provided at the time the assignment is given and be completed in class.
