Now lets learn about you!
What is Intro to Art?
This is a high school level art appreciation course that is designed for individuals at all levels of artistic knowledge.
(No knowledge - to - Extensive knowledge)

We will be covering a variety of content, varying from art movements and cultural art, to art genres and the various artists that are involved in them.

Studio art and techniques will also be a main focus that accompanies the content we cover.
These portfolios will be used to collect all your art throughout the class.

I will grade the work in your portfolio at the end of each assignment, as well as assess your progress based on past assignments.

Your progress and improvement will be a major factor in my grading criteria.
What are we
going to be making?
On the inside of your portfolios there is a list!

Unit - lessons - media - techniques - artists - etc.

This is provided for you so that you know what is coming and have the opportunity to prepare.
I will always be willing to provide materials for students outside of class or after school if they would like to practice with any sort of media or technique.
Now list one other topic/media/artist/culture/etc. that YOU would like to learn about.
That's right, you choose your own final project!
This final piece should reflect your strengths, as well as what you have learned throughout the class.
Be prepared to make progress goals, criteria for your work, list of materials, and a description of what you will be creating.
Keep this in the back of your
mind as you progress!
Final Portfolio
At the very end of the class you will present all your combined work in critique of your portfolio as a whole.

Here you will explain what you've learned over the term and how you've grown as an artist.
Your student choice final will be included in this critique and should reflect the most progress out of all your work.
Things you will need every day!
Begin your search in the library for a book on an artist to research. (if you cant find a book on a specific artist you want, talk with me about online sources)
Keep this list!
We will be adding to it in an upcoming assignment on your identity.
In your sketchbook you may begin drawing pictures, on your own time, that relate to what you have already written down about yourself.
If you feel over stressed or need extra help with anything in this class, I am always willing to provide assistance.
Fair isn't everyone getting the same thing.
Fair is everyone getting what they need in order to be successful.
One warning will be given for poor behavior.

After that we will individually have a talk, either during lunch or after school (which ever is best for you)
Bad Behavior
Any further actions that are needed will be dealt with by the principle.
(lets just not get to that point, it's no fun for you or for me)
You are always responsible for how you act, no exceptions.

I am always willing to reconsider a grade if you are willing to re-consider your work. Talk with me about it!
