Next week is March already and March is Youth Art Month. Each year we do a large YAM activity and try to get as many students involved as possible. This year due to scheduling challenges we had to mix it up a bit. Students artwork will be displayed each day on the announcements and the digital media boards throughout the school. Each day the artwork will change to feature artists from all of our different art courses. In my class, I will also be doing a fun YAM project with them next week to create a large collaborative mixed media project. But you will just have to wait to see....Hint-take a peek at the image below.
So, it has been a couple of weeks since I posted the awesome AP Art critique we did in class. Well, here is the outcome of the critique...new concentrations. Overall, the quality was so much better! Students spent more time planning, experimenting and sharing ideas. Students were able to address some of the issues and challenges they were having, such as dealing with negative space, using the correct media for the idea being presented and issues related to particular media.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
