Ferris Junior High Art Newsletter

Empowering smART students

Welcome to the Junior High Art Newsletter. Inside you will find a synopsis of things happening in the room currently, as well and those things that are on the horizon.

In the Classroom

Art I has been learning the basics so far this year. We have discussed Line and created two line related projects, and we are now moving into Value, the second of seven elements we will cover this year. We are also learning basic sketching skills that will improve our pencil control, realistic conception of human features, and enable us to excel on our next major project.


Art II just completed their Elemental Review highlighting the most important aspects of the Elements of Art. They are now beginning a Giant Heads sculpture project. Art II has also set up their personal online portfolios so that they can share the work they are creating over the year.


BOTH courses are discussing art in an intellectual manner each Wednesday and critiquing a variety of artworks on Fridays.
