During the course of this class, your child will receive a comprehensive, cross-curricular, Art education based on the frame work of the Florida State Standards. We will learn about art through varying cultures, develop an extensive working vocabulary, as well as gain an understanding of art interpretation. Your child will also be producing their own masterpieces!
I do ask that each student bring the following to class on or before next Monday, January 12th:
In addition, we can always use recycled plastic and paper grocery bags as well as plastic containers with lids. All other tools and materials needed will be provided. Unless homework is assigned, both the sketchbook and folder can be left in the classroom.
The student expectations for our class are as follows:
We will have several collaborative opportunities, a research project, and a comprehensive final at the end of the course. As we are a technology school, we will be using the student laptops in the art room for research, inspiration and gallery tours. On the days we are not using them, they will be stored to the side of the room out of harms way.
Please feel free to communicate any cares, concerns, or insights you may have, my email is [email protected] It is my intention to respond to all emails within 24 hours. You will have access to all assignments, grades, and Florida State Standards covered through your students e-school account. In addition, you will be able to access my website via the VRA home page where you will find class information as well as links to enhance your child s art education.
I have an open door policy and you are always welcome to visit our class!
