Welcome to Art
Welcome to 6th Grade Art !!!
Instructor: Mrs. Lee email:email@example.com
Period 7 phone (509) 565- 3343
The 6th Grade Art Curriculum is designed to be in accordance with Washington State Standards. We introduce students to the Element of Art, a variety of techniques and media (the materials used), with an introduction to art history and the ability to present and respond to art. Individual creativity, neatness, and showing respect for other people’s work is encouraged.
Area of Study:
Trimester 1 The Elements of Art; which are line, shape, value, texture, color, space and form.
Trimester 2 Art Through the Ages
Trimester 3 Art Around the World
Grades will be determined by daily work and finished projects. The three criteria for each assignment will be Applies knowledge and skills (follow directions and turns in neat, careful, quality work); Communication (can express feelings and ideas); and Demonstrates thinking skills (can identify patterns and follow multiple steps). Students will be encouraged to self-assess using a project rubric and reflect on how they feel about their work.
Projects will be assessed using a standards based 1-4 scale.
Do your best and have a positive attitude!
Treat others respectfully.
Take responsibility for yourself and your actions.
Be prepared for class.
Respect art supplies and school property.
Clean up on time- class will be dismissed when supplies are accounted for, work area and floor is clear.
Materials and Supplies: Students will need pencils and erasers. Students may bring their own art supplies to use in class if they choose to do so - however, most of the art supplies will be provided in the classroom. We are in need of some supplies --- old magazines for cutting up, egg crates, paper towel tubes, paper plates / cups to use for paint pallets. Also interested in a possible demonstration of knitting or crochet if you have this talent and time.
I am looking forward to an exciting semester of art!
