The eighth grade art curriculum is focused on helping the students to develop a more comprehensive, working knowledge of basic art elements and principles. While practicing and working on continued skill development and acquisition of knowledge concerning art theory, students are encouraged to be actively engaged in their own learning by taking risks with their work, asking questions, initiating conversations, and making connections.
Eighth grade art students have one to two homework assignments a month. Assignments are related to what we are working on in class, so it is important that they are done and handed in when they are due. Homework assignments are handed out and reviewed in class. For those students who misplace their hard copy, assignments are always posted online on the Team 8 web site and hard copies are available in the art room.
I will try to make a sincere effort to keep you informed of any significant changes that may occur throughout the year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Art assignments and pertinent information will be directly emailed to the students.
