Assigned #s

You will be given assigned #s and seats while in my class. This # is for your desk, iPad, and all numbered supplies such as pencil bags and palettes.

Syllabus

The Fundamentals of Art course introduces students to the elements of art and the principles of design. Students will learn basic drawing skills and techniques that are utilized with media, including watercolors, acrylic paints, color pencil, marker, and pen. We will cover both two-dimensional and three-dimensional design. Syllabus

Remind

All students MUST sign up for REMIND. A Daily sketchbook assignment will go out each morning per REMIND, along with any tests, midterms, etc.

Visual Journal

You will be given a sketchbook or as I call it a 'visual journal' to keep all semester-each morning you will have a 5-minute task to complete. You will also be using this plan and design our projects.

Portfolio

Portfolios will be created today! Please make sure your names are legible and on one side. Name on the back-black marker and it is legible with your BLOCK #.

HOW MANY PEOPLE THINK THEY CAN'T DRAW?

Grab the paper on your desk! And... a pencil!

DAY 2

The Website

This is a Hybrid Course.

That means that at any given time you might be required to go to the class website and research on different projects. If you miss something you can find what we are doing for a particular day by looking at the calendar. If we are taking a quiz... the website.

YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR CODE TODAY!

Pre-Assessment

You will be given a Pre-Assessment on the 2nd day of class to see what you know and don't know. This will let me know how fast or slow I can teach the class. Please try your best.
