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!

Although we planned to present our wikis today, we had a day of interuptions and preoccupied students. 1st block was able to get through a few presentations before the first interruption, other classes did not. After having lengthy discussions in each class, our presentations were postponed until Monday. It seemed a fitting time to teach and learn about personal responsibility and the consequences of apathy and disrespect on all of us.

Students instead used the period to voice and discuss concerns they have at school with their teachers, administration, and their peers. One class even made posters to illustrate concerns and proposed solutions. It was a good exercise in accepting responsibility and productive criticism instead of whining, defensiveness and apathy. I was quite proud at many of the students' frank responses to my questions about our student body's attitude about school, and I hope I gave a few students something to think about. We truly have great students at SMHS, and I hope they'll see that, too!
