Welcome to the online art studio, aka the wired atelier*!

This blog is designed for students and families in Allison Fuller-Mulloy's SMHS Art Classes. It is a site for posting our daily work and homework (IWs) each week, ideas and images to explore further, reminders and due dates. I hope this blog will help students by reinforcing the week's major ideas and activities, giving make-up work for absentees, and providing families a look into the atelier every day!

Lab work

Today was the final day students spent in the computer lab working on their wikis. Many student groups were completely finished with their Art critiques and had them posted by the end of the period. A few students should be finishing up tonight at home in preparation of their presentations tomorrow. I am extremely excited to see what our students have to say about the artwork they chose and see what they thought about the use of the wiki for this unit of study.

When several students were finished, I showed them www.bubbl.us. What a fun Website for creating concept maps and brainstorming! The students that tried it loved playing around and seeing the color change and manipulation that was possible with the concept maps.

Looking forward to presentations tomorrow!
