6th grade 2D Visual art will be learning about the elements (line, shape, color, form, value, space, time, and texture) and principles (balance, unity, pattern, rhythm, emphasis, proportion, contrast, repetition, and variation) of design. The first project will emphasize what they had learned about line and color. They will learn about the urban art of graffiti and be able to create their own "tag" on magnets using sharpies. This lesson is designed so that students further develop fine motor skills and a unique signature for future artwork.
7th grade 2D Visual art also will be learning about the elements (line, shape, color, form, value, space, time, and texture) and principles (balance, unity, pattern, rhythm, emphasis, proportion, contrast, repetition, and variation) of design. 7th grade classes will be learning the art of 2D traditional animation and develop their own characters to be placed in worlds of his or her own creation.
8th grade Drawing /Painting students will be learning about the elements and principles of design as well, and use their knowledge of line and color to create an illuminated page using paint, crayons, and ink, much like those created during the medieval era, but with unique and modern illustration.
8th grade Photography students will be learning about their cameras and learn about the rules of composition. Students will be asked to take photos that correspond to these composition rules. All the while they will be introduced to Photoshop CS6, and be working on various tutorials.
All students will soon be receiving their Visual Arts Journals and be expected to add entries to said journals the first 10 minutes of every class.
All students in both 2/D and 3/D art will soon be completing art work for the ART TO REMEMBER fundraiser this semester. You will receive more information soon.
