Advanced Art Warm up & Homework

All advanced art students will have two drawings to work on every week in their sketchbook. Drawings are assigned on Mondays and due the following Monday.

The first is their warm up drawing which is worked on during the first five minutes of class every day. If a student is not finished by the end of the week, this classroom website will allow them to finish the drawing up over the weekend.

The second drawing is their homework drawing which is written on the white board every Monday and is also posted here on our classroom website.
Each drawing is worth 25 points towards their scholarly grade.

This weeks' warm up drawing which is due Tuesday, 9/6/11:
Frank Stella, Sunset Beach, 1967, oil on canvas.
This weeks' homework drawing which is due Tuesday, 9/6/11:
Draw you favorite summer memory.
Fill the page, include a background and use color pencils.


Today is the first day of school and I want to welcome everyone back to an exciting 2011-2012 school year.

Beginning art classes are offered this year for a semester long class during periods 2, 3, 5 & 6. These classes are mixed 6th, 7th and 8th grade students and will explore drawing, painting, sculpting and mixed medias. The art curriculum is new every year so if a student was in my art class in previous years they will not repeat the same projects.

There is one advanced art class offered this year for a year long course during period 4. This class is mixed 7th & 8th grade students and is based on an application procedure.

If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at bwille@ewcsd.org
