This week

ART ONE: Portrait Projects were due yesterday by the end of class. If students were absent during this project, they will need to make time to come in during tutoring times to do get caught up.

ART TWO: There was a Charcoal Project check yesterday/today. Students were to be to the point of erasing out their details by yesterday. If they weren't to this point, they didn't receive the full credit.

Today, Art 1 are practicing/Brainstorming designs and patterns for their next project.

{GRADES WERE POSTED LAST TUESDAY IN CLASS, I have only received a couple projects from those students who were missing something}

Week of January 21

Tuesday-Friday: All Students/Classes are to continue with their portrait projects.

GRADES!!! Grades have been updated. These grades are reflected from projects/participation as of Friday, Jan 18. Grades will be posted in class Tuesday for students to see what they are missing. Art 2 students work from Friday while I was out and had a sub, will be graded tomorrow and added as soon as I can.

I hope everyone reading this is doing well. The Flu bug made her visit with my family and hit both my daughter and myself. I was not able to make it as a chaperone on Friday's field trip. But I am feeling better and my daughter has been free from fever for over 24 hours, so I hope to be at work tomorrow. Being sick is the pits and I missed my students!

Heads up for Tomorrow & Grade status

Tomorrow (Friday, January 18, 2013) I will be out chaperoning a field trip. Art 1 students are to continue their project. Art 2, will have an alternate assignment since their current project is rather messy and I don't want give my substitute a heart attack. What they will be doing will be completed during class and turned in at the end of the class for a grade.

Grade status- I am 1.5 Art 1 classes away from getting Scratch Art projects graded. I hoped to of gotten them all finished this afternoon, but something came up and I was not able to. I will be taking it all home and hoping to have the gradebook completely updated by Tuesday.

Reminder that we have a 3 day weekend this weekend, no school on Monday, January 21. I hope everyone has a great weekend and returns back safely.

Testing 1 2 3

Testing to see if my RSS feed has been fixed...

Friday, January 11, 2013


Okay- I don't know what the deal is. My RSS feed is not automatically posting to my Twitter or Facebook accounts. I am working on that.

For today and Monday-

Art 1- Day 2 of Grid Practice and on Monday they will recieve their portaits and will start gridding out their images and their project paper.

Art 2- Last day to review/practice gridding and will practice Charcoal. I will be taking pictures of the students who did not have an image ready for today. I call it my 'Just in Case' group of portraits. I will have their image 'just in case' they don't bring one in on Monday. If they do not have an image for this Charcoal project ready or if they refused to allow me to take their portrait, they will receive an automatic Zero for their Summative grade. Monday, they will start prepping their project paper for their project.
