3D ART Syllabus

“Every child is born an Artist. The problem is how to remain one once one grows up” –Picasso

In this course we will continue to explore techniques related to 3D art.  We will look into design elements along with the challenge of making structurally stable work.  To be successful in this course you must be able to think critically, and solve artist and structural problems in art.  This class builds upon knowledge already obtained in Art 1 and must be taken in order, after the introductory course.

Materials needed:
Pencil
$10.00 art fee (per semester) ($20 for the year)
9x12 sketchbook (recommended)

Rules:
-Be on time
-Keep the classroom clean
-Respect each other, the teacher, and all artwork in the classroom
-Never say “I can’t”

Cell Phones:
1.       Cell phones may be used to find reference photos, take photos of ART, or to check time.
2.       Cell phones may not be used to text, make phone calls, check snapchat, facebook, instagram, kik, vine, twitter, or other social media.
3.       Cell phone usage will also be up to teacher discretion. (If you are not sure just ask first)

3.       Referral

Grade scale:
Projects= 45%

Art is not about how well you can draw or paint but is more about how you see the world and can interpret your own ideas successfully.  Extra points will always be awarded for creativity, exploration, and hard work.
I know we will have a great year.
