What's Happening in the Art Room?

  • INFORMATION ABOUT REMOTE LEARNING!!

    Posted by Katie Banaszynski on 3/30/2020
    As the Encore team transitions to remote learning, there are a few key components to be aware of. 
     
    1. Encore teachers will post their assignments on Google Classroom the first two days of every week until we are back in session. The first ART project will be posted in Google Classroom tomorrow morning by 7:45 am. Students have been using Google Classroom since the beginning of the term. They should be fully aware of how to access projects. 
     
    2. Encore instruction will be 15 minutes two days a week until we return to the physical classroom. The first two weeks are outlined below. Should there be any changes moving forward, there will be communication from your Encore teacher. 
     
    March 31 and April 1 (weekly total 30 min)
    April 6 and April 7  (weekly total 30 min)
     
    3. Due to our limited amount of time, some assignments could last longer than a day or two. If this is the case, the Encore teacher will communicate due dates via Google Classroom. ALL ART projects will span several 15 minute class periods. 
     
    4. In order to record attendance/participation, there will be a daily reflection via google classroom until the final project is due.
    All assignments are due no later than 9pm daily.  Please make sure assignments and/or reflections are turned in by that deadline (or sooner) each night. 
     
    5. Though instructional time is limited to 15 minutes a day for Encore classes, students are able to spend more time (if they desire) on any creative endeavor. 
     
    6. Encore teachers will be available via Google Classroom or Email to support instruction from 7:45-12:45 every day. 
     
    This will be new terrain for all of us, We look forward to working together with you and your student to ensure quality instruction continues to the best of our ability. 
     
    Thank you for your support!

  • 6th Grade Notan Designs

    Posted by Katie Banaszynski on 10/24/2019

    Check out these 6th Grade Notan Designs! What is Notan? 

    Notan is a Japanese term which means "light dark harmony".  Artists use "notan studies" to explore different arrangements of light and dark elements in a work of art, without having the distraction of other elements like color, texture and finer details. Students created mirror images of their dark elements to emphasize balance within their work. 

    Wow!

    Wow! Check these out. These are just a few of the many wonderful pieces that were finished last week. This project is one of our most challenging, but most students walk away from it feeling more confident about their drawing capabilities.
