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

We are wrapping up Module 6 on Monday. We have been studying the art elements of Shape and Form. Students should be setting up and drawing a still life, critiquing that still life drawing, creating an abstract design in their choice of markers or digital media, and summing it all up with a quiz. Module 6 is due November 16.

Please take note of the supplies that are needed for Module 7. Brace yourselves, paint is coming. Also, next week is Spirit Week for NCVPS! We'll have some themed fun each day that can be found in the daily announcements as well as lots of opportunities for extra credit.

Progress report grades were released to the school on Thursday, November 12th.

Supplies for Module 7

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")
  • two pieces of cardboard 8" x 10" or larger (pizza or cereal boxes are perfect)
  • paint - any type - acrylic, spray paint, watercolor, etc. Does not matter what kind this module.
  • paper of any kind (newspaper, tissue paper, drawing paper, math homework paper)
  • OPTIONAL: you may want access to crayons, sand, bottle-caps, lipstick, or other random textured materials for a project in Module 7.
  • markers or digital drawing/painting software (students' choice)
  • 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.
