Week of October 10th-14th, 2016

I began looking at Mask sketches on Friday.  I still have a few to get through on Monday.  I saw some really creative materials and ideas.  I am very excited about the possibilities!  PLEASE if your son (or you) needs help with any materials have them see me or email me as soon as possible so they can get working.  Remember, this project counts for 200 points.  I plan on having at least 2 Open Studios over the next two weeks, so students will be able to come in and work on their masks in the Art room if they would like too.  The first Open Studio is scheduled for THURSDAY the 13th from 6:30-9:00pm in the Art room.  The second will be the week of the 17th-21st.  I still need to find a day and time that will work for the majority of students.  I would like to have this one after school.  I will update the website by the end of the week.

Students started work on using different types of drawing pencils last week.  They are finishing up a worksheet on using those pencils.  The worksheets are DUE by the end of the period on TUESDAY (the 11th).  

The next step in the process is drawing their hand in their sketchbook.  We will go over different techniques on how to do that.  The Hand sketches will be DUE by the end of the period on FRIDAY (the 14th).  They will then begin research on Surrealism.  This will give them ideas on how they can go about making their Handscape drawings.
