Intermediate Art

Welcome back!

     In this course, we’ll build on the basic artistic skills and knowledge you gained in Art I.  We will also delve into the world of Art History, stretching from ancient times up to the 1900s!  You’ll learn about how context can affect interpretation, and how an artist’s choices can affect the outcome of an artwork. We’ll also expand your art vocabulary, so you can articulate your thoughts about well-known works of art. Fair warning - there will be regular quizzes and a few tests about this stuff. Of course, you will also get to try out a variety of artistic methods and styles, as you’ll be doing plenty of hands-on projects :) 


LMS:  We will do most work in person, but will use Google Classroom for some minor assignments and to turn in photographed work.  I’ll give you a join code on the first day of class. 


Materials Needed:  The supply list will be posted in Google Classroom, but I can provide a paper copy.  Please let me know if you need help getting any supplies; I may have some extras!


Attendance Policy:  We are back to our regular attendance procedures.  Missed assignments can be found on Google Classroom.  Email attendance notes to nbhs.attendance@bcsemail.org

Extra Credit: opportunities will occur throughout the grading period, and I may consider working with you on an individual basis if you request to work on a larger extra credit assignment.  This opportunity and the amount of credit received will be up to my discretion, but it generally works out in your favor to just make up your missing assignments instead :)


Cheating: Unless I specifically tell you to practice copying something, your artwork (and all other work) needs to be your own.  Don’t copy things from the internet - have fun coming up with your own creations!  Copied work may not be graded, and cheating on a test or quiz will result in a zero and call home.
