A few new things have been added to the website this year so I thought I would point them out! An updated syllabus has been added to the links on the sidebar of the homepage. You can reference them through the year as needed! You may also notice a new "Studio Habits of Mind" section in the top bar. We will be talking a lot about the 8 Studio Habits of Mind this year, so you might want to explore them before school begins! You will also find the Studio Habits on the new grading rubric for this year, which has a permanent home under "resources". Understanding the rubric will help you understand your grade :) But remember, anytime you have a question, I will be happy to walk you through it! Just for fun I have also included a chart that shows what the Studio Habits actually LOOK like in our classroom! As the year goes on, hopefully you will see how they are incorporated into all the projects we do.
SECONDARY ART STANDARDS
ELEMENTARY ART STANDARDS
As far as new materials/supplies in the art room, I have a few fun surprises! I can't wait to show you the class apron set I got! You are all going to love wearing them! I even made a rack to hang them up on in our classroom. Something else new this year is our class pottery wheel! Thanks to a generous donation on Donors Choose my ceramics students will get the change to throw a pot or two on the wheel. The room is currently well stocked with new paint and paper, all the things that art teachers love best ;). I can't wait to get my class lists for this fall, waiting is always the hardest part. I am so excited to see which awesome students I get to interact with this year!
