Welcome to the 2014 – 15 School Year!

“Unless you have a definite, precise, clearly set goals, you are not going to realize the maximum potential that lies within you.” — Zig Ziglar 


Welcome back to school! This is going to be a GREAT year and I am VERY excited to be back. I hope that all of you are too. There are a few things that we do in the art classroom that will happen everyday – Goal Setting (based on the National Visual Arts Standards), Work, and Reflection. This will all become second nature as the semester rolls along and I ask you to trust that what we do in class at the beginning and end of the class will help you in the middle portion of class as well as with the final artwork that we create. Enough said! Let’s get to it!

Robert Indiana uses a lot of TEXT in his art… how about using something you are familiar with in yours? Image http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2277/1750965577_f7ee03962d.jpg

    1. Thank you Paul. The kids may not get it 100% now, but I know they like to be aware of the direction we are going. It sure makes the process of making and working easier for them. (In the end, the grades are higher too because they understand the concepts better.)
