ABOUT THIS CLASS:
This class primarily involves visual art and will focus on both art history/appreciation and art techniques and development of skills using various media. There will be a class taught at the 7th grade level and a separate class for 8th grade. These classes will be for the ENTIRE year and cannot be split or combined with other electives.
Students entering grades 7 and 8 are eligible to apply for this class. Students must have completed the previous grade with a minimum A/B average. Interested students must complete the attached written application and submit three drawings. Student applications may also include the name of a former teacher that they wish to use as a reference. (Optional: but if submitted, this teacher will be contacted for their recommendation.) In addition to these requirements, students should have a genuine interest in learning about the history of art, art techniques, and producing art. Finally, parents/guardians must understand all class requirements and give their consent.
Students are expected to fully participate in all class activities and complete all outside assignments. The production of art can be fun – but also long and tedious - and chosen students must be willing to “put in the time” it takes. I am NOT looking for students who want to rush through work and who don’t care about doing their best on projects. Please be sure that you are committed to the class as you can be replaced at any time by a student who will better appreciate the opportunity.
