UIL Art

Mondays from November 28-January 30

About:

During our time together we will be looking at and talking about 40 different art pieces and artists, focusing on the history and art elements used. There is also a memorization piece, where students will be shown an image and must be able to recall the title of the piece and the artist. We have already begun looking at several of the works in class as warm-ups. Due to the amount of information, Art UIL will require students to study on their own time.
