Super Sleuth!!

Students have till the end of February to get their guesses in for the new Mystery Artist. Here are the clues:

  • This French sculptor was born in 1840 in Paris, France.
  • Repeatedly rejected by the E`cole des Beaux-Arts, he earned his living by doing decorative stonework.
  • Sculpture's realism was so great that he was accused of forming its mold on a living person.
  • Became so successful he established a workshop where he executed only molds, leaving the casting of bronze and the carving of marble to assistants.
  • Created such works as: The Gates of Hell, Dyanmic Bust of Victor Hugo, The Thinker and Winged Victory.

Have you checked Artsonia lately? New artworks by our Hopkins students are published frequently in this online gallery. Once permission has been granted for a student, he/she will have permission for artworks to be published the whole time the student is enrolled at Hopkins. If you have not filled out a permission slip for this neat opportunity for your student, please contact me if you need a permission or if you forgot your log-in information.

Grading Scale

Just a reminder that percentages are not relevant to grades. In the related arts we score students out of 10 points. We like to see all students at least receive a "7", which means they are working at grade level. Anything higher than a "7" shows the student is doing above or outstanding in the area of content.
