This week the class is working on Art History Projects. We were given various options to choose from including but not limited to Sing it, paint it, or act it. I love this project because it lets us use our creativity to tell something of history's greatest artists. Go Van Gogh! -Rikki
Along side working with the best group in the world, this prodject was by far my favorite. Many of the students picked a wide varity of artists, also they pick many different ideas. I really think everyone worked extremely hard for this prodject. - Tristen Harper
This week during second hour art, we created a fairy tale collage. We could pick any scene or character from any fairy tale and then we created that same scene using pieces of magazine. The only rules were that it had to be from a fairy tale and that there had to be torn magazine pieces, as well as cut-out ones. This was a long process and a lot of work, but it was fun! Can't wait to see more of the finished ones!
This week in first hour Art, we have been working on our Post-it Murals. It was harder then we thought it was going to be, we learned how hard it is to work as a group and not get distracted. The objective of this project was to take 1.5 inch sticky notes and glue them to make a picture on a big sheet of paper. We liked how it turned out and how spectacular it looks but we didnt like how messy and long it was to complete. We enjoy art very much and we have a great teacher.

This week in second hour, our job was to make a clay trivet. A trivit is similar to a hot plate that you might set a warm pot or pan on to not wreck the table. They were supposed to be 6 inches in diameter and include some type of coil. Once we have sculpted our tivets we have to let them dry completely and then glaze them to add color. What I liked about this project was how we could make any design on our trivits.
This week in third hour Art, we had the objective of taking pictures of random objects that shaped letters. In doing this, we made a powerpoint presentation for Friday on what we used for letters, and an eight-letter (or more) word we spelled with these letters. Its not as easy as I earlier thought. My favorite thing about this project is taking the pictures. My least favorite element of this project is making the presentation and presenting on Friday. The media we are using is plainly cameras and photo editing software.
