Week of December 11th-15th, 2017

This week students will continue working on their Animal Eye Colored Pencil pieces.  They have really gotten off to a great start.  The finished colored pencil pieces will be DUE at the beginning of the class on MONDAY, DEC. 18th.  That will give us Monday and Tuesday of next week to frame their pieces. 

If students finish their animal eye piece or would like to work on their semester project at the same time, that is fine as long as both pieces are finished on their respective due dates. 

On Friday we have a wonderful opportunity for students during 3rd period.  If you are in 2nd period you are welcome to attend as long as you pick up a permission form from Mrs. Plagge to be signed by your 3rd period teacher and parent by Thursday.  Savannah College of Art and Design will be coming to visit the Art Department during 3rd period.  They will be discussing the many opportunities that exist for art related degrees in our society and will provide information about their school.  They do a great job presenting the options that are available to students.

Looking towards next week and the end of the semester...which seems hard to believe.  The Semester Still Life project will be DUE WEDNESDAY, DEC. 20th.  This project is worth 200 points.  It is meant for the student to showcase what they have learned so far this year.  Use your time wisely and creatively.
