Ms.Lane's Art Class
Overview: Welcome to art class! I'm Ms.Lane and I instruct sixth, seventh, and eighth grade art. Sixth and seventh grade students are on an elective rotation schedule, with classes changing every nine weeks. The rotation order is as follows:
8th grade students will remain in their elective year-round.
Class Resouces: This year, my class will be using Edmodo, an online classroom where students can display their work, turn in quizzes, view notes, and ask questions. On the first day of class, your student will receive a username and password for Edmodo. You may sign up on your own, or wait for me to send you a parent link. (It may take a few days to get links out, as I will be asking your student for the best e-mail or contact number for you.) By creating a parent account, you will be able to see everything your student posts on Edmodo (including teacher messages) and you can also message me directly through the app/site. Until then, you may e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
6th Grade: Sixth grade classes will be in art for one nine week period, due to the rotation schedule. In sixth grade art we will be focusing on the elements of art: line, shape, value, texture, color, form, and space. Students will have notes at the beginning of each section and will do projects related to each element prior to the test.
7th Grade:Seventh grade classes will be in art for one nine week period, due to the rotation schedule. In seventh grade art we will be focusing on three different eras of art: Ancient art, Renaissance art, and Modern art. Students will have notes at the beginning of each section and will do projects related to each era prior to the test.
8th Grade:Eighth grade classes will remain in art year-round, allowing us to focus on many areas of art and complete various projects. It is advised that your student bring either an apron or a large, old shirt to wear for projects that may become particularly messy. In eighth grade we will be focusing on art around the world. We will be looking at art from a few continents and some common techniques and subjects from that section of the world. Eighth grade classwork will be more project based, with a few written tests covering what we have learned about art history from each continent.
