Sketchbook List

I have been meaning to post this list of artists students came up with for the research portion of our 1st marking period sketchbook. Each student came up with 3 artists or movements and shared with the class. This is a rich and broad list and the best part is that it is student generated. Bravo!

Art College visitation schedule so far

There is a tab at the top of my site with the college visitation schedule so far. This will be updated as needed.

The tab is called Art College Visits.


Attention All Students: Adobe Creative Suite

Due Friday, 10.16.15

You are required to download the Adobe Creative Suite to your school-issued laptops. Go to the Start menu and then to Download Center. You should see it there. Check the box and download it.

This must be done while connected to the school network and you must use your power cord. If it does not complete the download during class time you can plug your machine back in later in a different location within the school and it will resume.

You must have Adobe Photoshop on your laptop to edit and process your artwork as you archive it for your WordPress sites.

This is not negotiable.
