Students are collaborating with their peers at Lost Mountain Middle School on a poetry unit.
Students began this week with introductions. Students from Durham created and wrote a post card to their partner at Lost Mountain and will be awaiting their response. Next, students are working on a 2D piece that depicts an Adversity that they have faced in their life. Students will be giving their artwork to their partner at Lost Mt. to interpret and write a poem based on the visual. Looking a head, students will be invited to an Art/LA night at Lost Mt. Middle to celebrate their success and so students can meet in person!
Students are creating an artwork the depicts the theme "CommUNITY" for the GAEA art competition. Students have taken home a permission slip to get signed and those that have brought their slips in will submit their work on Friday March 31st. There are no size or medium restrictions for the work.
Students are bringing home a syllabus to have signed along with a permission slip for an art contest. Due Tuesday March 21st.
Students are also to bring in 2 black sharpies any size and a sketchbook by Monday March 27th. The school store does have some sketchbooks available for purchase. If you are unable to get a sketchbook please email me and I will take care of it.
I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting 4th quarter.

Students explored and manipulated tools and media to create meaning and express thoughts in their sketchbook.
