I will be out of the building October 21-25 except for Wednesday. Students will be continuing their work or learning new things during these four days. Upon my return we will wrap up the quarter in 6th and 8th grades (7th grade ends in 3 weeks)
Students are finally seeing what their Greek Vases look like glazed. Some of them have been selected to go into the Buchanan Art Show in November and on to the Box Factory show in March. We are learning about intermediate colors and creating an abstract painting out of watercolor. We will also be tackling 1 point perspective at the end of the week and possibly have time for an African embossing.
All work is due on Wednesday, October 30th -
We are winding up our first quarter and have just entered the turn of the century (from the 19th to the 20th).

We haven't been able to catch a break this quarter. Our work on the yearbook has had to be pushed back a week and therefore the yearbook design grade will not be on this marking period. In the meantime we are learning about photography. Students made a camera obscura and learned how film works by creating a nursery rhyme. We will be taking photos on Wednesday and begin work on the yearbook on Thursday.
