Seventh Grade Art

                        In seventh grade we spend some of our art time relating to art history. We will research an artist, write a paper about him/her, make a poster about him/her, and do a drawing or painting showing the style of the artist. We will do a clay sculpture, an art quilt, and perspective drawing.  These will all be on display at the spring art show.

We will have sketches due of objects that you draw as you are looking at them for each week of class. I expect the sketches to take about 20 minutes; if you are done much earlier you should add other items to your drawing. Challenge yourself. Very simple items will not earn many points. You will need a sketchbook of some kind with unlined paper for these drawings. The ones with spiral bindings hold up much longer.

Art is a graded class. I realize all students start with different ability levels. As long as the student comes to class every day and spends his/her time working and turns in sketches they can expect at least a C grade or better. When a project is started, you will be given a form that shows what I will be looking for in the finished project. I will accept a sketch a week late, but not later than that. Bring pencils to class, not pens, and make sure you have an eraser if you will need one.

Behavior should be like that in other classes. Come in before the bell rings and start work immediately, cleanup no more than 5 minutes before class is over unless your media calls for it- if you are wondering, ask the teacher. You should not handle anyone else’s work or make negative comments about it. Stay out of supplies unless given permission to use them. Keep quiet while the teacher is talking to the entire class and talk quietly at other times. Failure to follow the rules of behavior will result in extra time put in after school, sometimes cleaning up the area. Tardies will be counted and four will earn you a detention after school.                      

                                                        Eighth Grade Art

                        In eighth grade we work on three projects. The first one will be a sculpture pot of an animal. You will need a picture of the animal before you start to work with the clay. Details will count for a large part of this grade. The next project will be calligraphy (fancy writing). We will do both practice and a finished project. The last piece we do in eighth grade is two-point perspective drawing.

Sixth Grade Art

            In sixth grade we will be working on three large projects. One is a castle tower built out of clay after looking at pictures of real castles. We will each decide on our own theme for the castle and do a simple drawing first. The next project is using perspective drawing to create a drawing of a tunnel, hallway, hole, etc. that disappears in the distance. Detail will be emphasized to let people know exactly what kind of space they are looking at. Our last project is landscape design. We will be looking at plants that are hardy to this area, looking at color, size, light requirements, textures, and height to decide which plants we will use to redesign a garden space. Templates and stencils will be used to create our drawings on vellum to overlay the original drawing.

We will have sketches due of objects that you draw as you are looking at them for each week of class. I expect the sketches to take about 30 minutes or more; if you are done much earlier you should add other items to your drawing. Challenge yourself. Very simple items will not earn many points. You will need a sketchbook of some kind with unlined paper for these drawings. The ones with spiral bindings hold up much longer. If you do not have a sketchbook you should have a folder to hold your drawings. It is important to keep these sketches together. Drawing a sketch is connecting the eye and the hand in the act of recording an image. This skill will improve with exercise of both the eye, hand, and mind.

Week one—draw skeleton of tree without leaves. Place it in an environment

Week two—draw a tool used to cook or bake that has a motor

Week three—draw a toy in an unusual place

Week four—draw your home from the road or street

Week five—draw your self portrait

Week six—draw something of your choice
