Important Information!

This week in art we are wrapping up grades for the first six weeks. Students in grades 7 and 8 who have not taken the color theory quiz will be taking the quiz on Wednesday, September 7th.  All students should have completed their rubric and reflections for the colored pencil project by Friday. If you were absent please see me. If you did not complete your project I am still available for extra help in the mornings at 8 am and in the afternoon by appointment. Incomplete projects will not receive a passing grade! I will be pulling sketchbooks for grades on Thursday, you should have at least two complete 30 day drawing challenges by now. Don't hesitate to see me if you have anything incomplete.

Visual Comp 1

Homework can be dreadful, but a necessary evil sometimes. Please leave your name as a comment to this post so that I know you have been here.

Color Schemes

As we study color theory in the art room this week take some time to look at the color scheme PowerPoint. How can we use value of a hue to add to these color schemes? Use this information to study for your color theory quiz on Friday, September 2nd.

Which color scheme(s) will you chose for your painting? What mood does it make you feel?

Just a friendly reminder that you are required to have your sketchbook (which lives in the art room and does not leave without permission),  a wooden pencil (unicorn), and your agenda every day.
You may also want to bring your own colored pencils, an eraser, and a hand help pencil sharpener!
