4th Block planning

 

Intermediate Art is designed to reinforce and build on knowledge and skills developed in Beginning Digital Art.  It is designed to present more challenges on individual projects and content knowledge.  Students will gain more experience in producing artworks in a greater variety of styles and programs.  The course emphasizes the study of the elements of art and principles of design, color theory, vocabulary, art criticism, understanding social, cultural and historical contexts of art and responsible use and care for equipment.  The students will gain appreciation for the process and product of each of their works of art to create their own portfolio of 10 – 15 pieces of artwork.  Students are provided a strong foundation in design, and art vocabulary in a teacher-structured environment.  Professionalism, problem solving and decision-making are emphasized throughout this course.

 

All Digital Art students are expected to purchase some basic supplies, please refer to the supply list provided.

 

Grading

Minor Assessments:  15%- Homework, bellringers,* participation.  *Participation grades include: attention to task, cooperation and collaboration, time management, task completion, caring for classroom work space and supplies.

Major Assessments:  25%: sketchbook assignments, tests, written work which includes art critiques.

Projects:  60%- This is a studio based class. For that reason, projects are very important. There will be 4-7 projects due each 9 weeks – see pacing guide.

Final exam: 25% of the final grade.  (This is a teacher constructed test -   Exemptions from final exams no longer apply to visual arts students)

 

The student will be graded not only on how well he or she meets the goal of the class, but also their attitude and effort.  Even students who have limited artistic  ability can make progress if they work diligently.  They do need to turn in all projects.   All work is due on the due date. Information is available on CANVAS.  

LATE WORK:To keep expectations and standards high, homework and projects are due on the date they are assigned. If an assignment is a day late, the grade begins at 80. If the assignment is more than a day late, the parent will need to write a note to the teacher explaining extenuating circumstances. At that time, credit will be given based on 10 point deduction per day following the second late day. Please see policy code: 3135

 Early finisher work will be available after completion of the assigned work.  Forgetting a project at home is NOT acceptable, and will affect final grade. Any work misplaced or lost will need to be redone for a grade.  Parents and Guardians, please be sure to provide an email address for pertinent information.

1st Block planning

 

ASW (Assessment of Student Work) - Due to the new protocol for assessment, we must retain ALL student work until the end of the semester.  All artwork must be kept in the student folder or sketchbook until the exam and any missing or lost work must be redone.

 

Beginning Art is the foundation level for art study throughout high school.  Student will have introductory experiences in using two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and digital media. The course emphasizes the study of the elements of art and principles of design, color theory, vocabulary, art criticism, art history, and safety in the art room. The approach to art experiences during this time is experimental in terms of materials. Students are provided a strong foundation in design, drawing and vocabulary in a teacher-structured environment. Professionalism, problem solving and decision making are emphasized throughout Beginning Art.

 

Beginning Art students are expected to purchase some basic supplies. Please refer to the supply list provided.

  

Grading:

Participation:  20%- Class participation grades include: attention to task, cooperation and collaboration, time management, task completion, caring for classroom and supplies

Projects:  60%- This is a studio based class. For that reason, projects are also very important. There will be 4-7 projects due each 9 weeks. Students will lose one letter grade if the project is turned in late.

·   One project grade is a Museum Visit & Critique.  This should be planned in advance and consists of a written review of works seen while visiting a museum of your choice on your own.  An alternate assignment is available for students who are unable to visit a museum.

Homework and writing assignments:  20%

Final exam: 25% of their final grade.  (consists of a teacher constructed test as well as the state assessment of student work.  Exemptions no longer apply to final exams.)

 

The student will be graded not only on how well he or she meets the goal of the class, but also their attitude and effort.  Even students who have limited artistic talent can do reasonably well if they work hard and do their best.  They must turn in all projects.  At the end of the nine-weeks, each student will have the opportunity to re-do one project to increase their grade.  All work is due on the due date, late work will be penalized by 5 points per day.  Early finisher work will be collected for extra credit only after completion of the assigned work.  Forgetting a project at home is NOT acceptable, additional work will be assigned during class and will count in the project grade.  Again, lost work must be redone and kept in student artwork folders.

Sequence of Assignments and Academic Calendar:  Dates have not been set yet.  Staff will be notified once deadlines have been made and they will be required to have pages submitted for editing five days prior to deadline.  This will allow the editors to make changes and pages given back to the staff member for final updates.

 

Note from Mrs. Pinto:  Please understand that this is not an “Easy A”.  Students are required to work on their pages every day, which includes taking pictures during the day not just class, editing grammar, interviewing students, attending after school events; anything that can make their page(s) show their best efforts.  Students are also expected to take an interest in the success of the advertising and sales of the yearbook, including contacting local businesses and individuals to gain support.

 

I have reviewed the course syllabus and understand the expectations and requirements.
