Test is Finally Over!

Well...the kids finally took the elements, principles, and movement quiz. Overall, they did pretty good. Over the next few weeks, we will be utilizing our new found knowledge of art to create and critique our own artwork. We will visit famous artists, such as Warhol, Picasso, and Van Gogh. Looking forward to a great Trimester...

It has been great to get to know all of you! The next few days should prove quite entertaining. We will be working on names and get a new (much anticipated) seating chart. Let's plan on Friday for our Written assessment and Monday for our Visual Assessment. Tuesday will mark the official beginning of our class when we start our first project.
