Welcome to Art 2


  • DESCRIPTION OF COURSE

    Art 2 is designed to help prepare students for life beyond the classroom by developing problem solving skills through the creation of different types of art. We will study drawing, painting, printmaking, bookbinding, ceramics, and art history - at a more rigorous level than Art 1. Throughout the year artists will create original works, learn more complex techniques, and hone their skills. Art takes time and patience- you MUST come to class prepared for hard work. Students are expected to give 100% and continuously challenge themselves artistically and successfully. 

    REQUIRED MATERIALS

    • Sketchbook
    • Glue Sticks
    • Ruler
    • Black Fine and Extra Fine Tip Sharpie Markers

    • $10 Art Fee – Used to purchase supplies needed for the projects during the semester. This fee should be paid as soon as possible and can be paid online here. Please make sure when paid online you make sure to specify painting and child's name.

    GRADING

    Grades in this class will come from projects, participation, sketchbook assignments, classwork and quizzes.

    All projects are graded based on a rubric that focuses on concept, creative expression, craftsmanship and class work.

    A small homework assignment may occasionally be assigned. If classwork is not completed, it becomes homework. So please use your class time wisely.

    A note regarding the CMHS Art Department’s grading policyYour participation grade is 25% of your nine-week grade.  Participation grades will be given at the end of each project and each class.  Points will be taken off for lack of participation, tardiness on projects, inappropriate behavior, not working during class, playing on phone or failure to clean up at the end of the class period.
