Week of August 31

WOWZERS!!! How can it already be the last day of August. Pretty soon it will be my favorite time of year, minus allergies and this semester will be over. We have all started off great this school year and I feel that it's just going to keep getting better.

This week. Students are continuing their Portfolio Projects.
Art 1: Free Form Drawing- Random lines and locating hidden objects.
Art 2: Creative Lettering- Creating custom fonts or modifying already existing fonts to create their names.
Art 3: Creating their names in the style of a Master Artist.

I hope everyone had a great First Week back!! I sure have! We got to get to know each other by playing the Toilet Paper Game on Monday. You got to show me what you know already by doing a drawing activity on Tuesday. You got to learn what is needed to Survive my class on Wednesday. The first of many projects was started on Thursday and today you are in your Groove and doing what you are suppose to be doing... CREATING!!!!

I am trying to get this image to post in a Contact Me tab at the top of the page. But until then, It's going to be here!!! For all your Art de Caddell needs, you can bookmark this image. I am going to hand out cards next week hopefully.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Today we are going to go through the dreaded Nitty Gritty. But hopefully it will be fine.
I will be covering the Rules/Procedures/Expectations/Grades with all my classes. Students are to then sign a sheet stating they viewed the powerpoint.
Here is the link to the PowerPoint for anyone who would like to view it. I will also include it in the Rules/Expectations Tab at the top of this blog.

Wow. It's already the beginning of the school year. Where did summer go?
I am getting the last minute details in order for this school year. I hope you find this blog to be a helpful way to keep up with what is going on in class. I will also be using Schoology. I haven't figured that out completely but I am working on it :)
