Week of November 20th-24th, 2017

On Monday, I will finish up the presentation for the Semester Project.  I will allow students to pick their poem and begin research on what artist they would like to work with to find inspiration.  I will put the information from the handout on the link following this weekly update. 

Students will be able to continue research for the Semester Project on Tuesday or continue working on their large scale painting.  The painting project will be worked on simultaneously with a new project that I will introduce after Thanksgiving break.  The painting needs to be finished by THURSDAY, DEC. 7th.
