Welcome to Eighth Grade Art
Your child will enjoy art every day for one full marking period. Eighth Graders will begin the course with a fun caricature project. They will then progress through the world of Optical Illusion Art, continuing with various projects that may include watercolor, acrylic painting, pen and ink with drawing. Each lesson touches on a different artist or style for inspiration. Art Appreciation and or history rounds out the course with a written lessons.
Each student is given a Course Evaluation Sheet on the first day of class. This is your link to their art grades and progress. Students understand that this may be brought home at any time to review with parents. Students are given an opportunity to re-submit any project for a re-evaluation within one week of initial grading. After school help is usually available Monday through Wednesday. Either art teacher may be reached via phone or e-mail.
