Weekly Info About Our Year Long Art Class - Week 17

Hello Again! Here's what's been going on in Art Class and what's coming up this week:

We spent all of last week thinking about the rules of composition and design in Module 8. This week we will continue that topic as well as expound upon the artwork of Wayne Thiebaud.

Grades will be submitted this week for progress reports. Many of you are taking your time with Module 8, which is fine. However, several of you are missing quite a bit of work from Modules 5-7. This will be reflected in your progress report available to the schools on Thursday.

The end of the 2nd Grading Period is coming up right after Winter Break so it is vital that all work from Modules 5-8 be completed no later than January 8th by midnight. I will be submitting grades for that quarter the following day. I will also add up any extra credit that students have accumulated into that quarter.

Module 8 and Winter Break

Please note that the official working time for Module 8 is extended with Winter Break but Module 9 is slightly abbreviated. I've opened up Module 9 for anybody who wishes to jump ahead over the break. If you do get ahead, make sure you are reading your assignments super carefully and asking questions if you don't understand before spending lots of time on an assignment.

Winter Break officially starts December 19 and ends January 3 for NCVPS. During that time there will be no additional information added to our course. If you are all caught up with your work, I suggest taking the time to rest and enjoy family. If you are struggling and behind on things, why not catch yourself up? All work, including Module 8 will be due no later than midnight on 1/8/16.

During the break, I will not be logging in regularly to grade your work. However, if you have questions or concerns about anything, please don't hesitate to text or email me. I'll get back to you pretty quickly so you don't get stuck.

Supplies for Module 8

As we are using more traditional materials, students will need to have access to their

  • sketchbook (or unlined drawing paper at least 9" x 12")
  • Access to magazines or photographs.
  • Paper to draw and/or paint on for the Thiebaud Composition Assignment.
  • paint - any type - acrylic, spray paint, watercolor, etc. Does not matter what kind this module.
  • OPTIONAL: GIMP free photo manipulation software for extra credit assignment.
  • Markers, colored pencils, oil pastels, and/or paint. Student choice of traditional media.
  • digital camera (or phone, tablet, or iPod with camera) (webcam if you're really desperate but they're not ideal)


If for any reason you are having trouble gathering these materials for class, please contact BOTH me and your ELA at your school. We both want you to have access to everything you need to be successful in this class.
