Week 1 (January 4 & 5)

Welcome to Comprehensive/Art History! I look forward to getting to know all of you this semester and introducing you to art production, art history, aesthetics, and art criticism! Make sure to sign up for my Remind and visit my blog weekly to stay in the know. Text @4g744e to 81010

Thursday-We will spend a good portion of the class getting to know one another. We will also have a discussion around the question, “what is art?” What does art mean to different people? Students will then complete a drawing pretest. This will help me see what skill level students are at as well as allow students to reflect on their artistic growth in May.

Friday-Every student will need a white poster board for class. We will use the poster boards to make a portfolio to store student work throughout the semester. In class, students will draw on the outside of their portfolio to visually describe themselves to myself and classmates. If students do not finish today, they will use time throughout the next week if they finish other assignments early.
