7th & 8th Grade Project - Art History

 Cardboard Relief Project

Today we graded our Self Portrait Relief project. If you did not finish, or if you did not like your grade you are welcome to fix or change anything during lunch, study hall, before/after school, or any other time that you may have free that a teacher will allow you to come to the art room. 


Art History Project - Part I

In Google Classroom there is an assignment in which we will be researching an artist of your choosing. Students must select a unique artist within their own class period. Meaning that in each class no two students can select the same artist. There is a list in each class, please see Mr. Ritter. Please visit Google Arts & Culture to select your artist. 

For this assignment you will need to access Google Classroom and open the Art History Project assignment. There is a document there that you will respond to seven questions about the artist you chose. You will need to respond to each question using two complete sentences: spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and proper sentence mechanics will also be assessed. 

Additionally, students must also include a citation with the information that they use. Students need to include the URL (web address) of the particular site. All information in your two sentences for each question, must be put into your own words. A simple copy, paste will not be accepted. 

Art History Project - Part II

7th Grade - For this part of the assignment students will be copying two different art works by their chosen artist, on the paper provided in class. 

8th Grade - For this part of the assignment students will be copying one art work by their chosen artist, on the large piece of paper provided in class.
