Palmer Middle School Visual Arts Class 6 TH Grade Syllabus Quarter3 2013 Welcome to Art Class! We are going to have a fun and busy nine weeks in art class. We will explore the elements of art and principles of design through a variety of mediums and learn about art history and cultural connections. Each student is expected to come to class on time prepared to learn and create. Class will begin each day with a sketchbook assignment and all students are expected to participate in daily lessons and projects. Be sure to visit the class blog to learn more about projects, helpful donations to art class and more! About Ms. Robleto: I am very excited to be your Art Teacher here at Palmer Middle School. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Kennesaw State University in Art Education. In my free time I enjoy drawing, photography, graphic design, tennis, traveling and spending time with family. Visual Arts Standards Art is an important means of self-expression, self- reflection, and the creation of personal identity. The Georgia Performance Standards for Visual Art builds opportunities for students to develop in affective, academic, and social ways through the explorations of visual media in their own art making and increasingly rigorous inquiry into art history, contemporary art making and cultural contexts. The standards guide development of the students’ technical skills and higher-order thinking. Aesthetic understanding, imagination, creativity, problem- solving, artistic skills and knowledge, historical and cultural context, critical analysis, and connections to other disciplines are important aspects of these standards. Access the Standards on my Blog. Supplies and Requirements Bring a pencil to class everyday! School Agenda. No agenda, no pass. Maintain sketchbook and portfolio. Both will be stored in the art room.
