Welcome back to Tri-Valley High School art. I am not only welcoming back my followers, but also myself. I always enjoy the beginning of my year, even if it is my busiest.
I have new Art 1 students that need to be taught some of the basics of line and shading before we can get into some serious projects. I have new advanced students that are eager to jump into the "fun" projects that they saw being created last year, but they even have to have some training before that can happen.
Anyways, this year I am going to be trying some new things. Thanks to Art in the Apex (a great HS blog) I am going to be trying a more hands on approach to note taking with my Art 1 class. I am not sure how to do this yet, but I think we will learn it together.
I am also going to have all of my advanced students create a blog. They will each need to post all of their assignments to that blog for grading. If you want to check out any of their blogs their web addresses are on the right side of my blog. Please feel free to check them out and leave comments about their work.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask me.
Otherwise I wish all of you a great year.
