Extra Help is every morning at 7:30 am in Art Room E. Students should see Mrs. Grady the day before for a pass.
Please hand in all late and missing homeworks as soon as possible...homework is 10% of your grade and has a significant effect on your quarter average.
Welcome to Art at Elwood Middle School! Art at the middle school level is an exploratory adventure of the elements and principles of art and design. Students at the 6th grade level will be introduced to many new materials, techniques and artists, and will use their knowledge of these to develop their creativity. Our art curriculum also challenges students to develop their problem solving ability, their sense of responsibility, their ability to make connections across the curriculum and their sense of self. Bi-weekly homework assignments reinforce art skills, reading skills and writing skills.
Students at the 8th grade level will review and build on previously learned elements and principles of art and design, and then use these skills to creatively problem solve at a more complex level. 8th grade students will keep a record of their 8th grade art experience through digital photographs and at the end of the semester will create a digital portfolio that will count as the course final exam. Bi-weekly homework assignments reinforce art skills, reading skills and writing skills.
All students are expected to have access to a flash drive, to hand homework in on the date it is due, to come to each class fully prepared and to complete projects in a timely manner.
