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!

College logo designs

Students continued to enjoy College Week today with an art project surrounding college logos. Students pre-selected a college logo to redesign and brought in a copy of the original today. After spending the first part of class in the computer lab to research college logos and find information about the college they chose, students worked on several sketches of possible new designs for the logo. Prompts for new ideas were given to consider, such as mascots, initials, geographical features, and notable programs of study at the college. By the end of the period, all students should have created several design ideas in their sketchbooks and given color to the best logo. Tomorrow students will finish College Week by creating their best logo design on 9x12 paper and add color using their choice of colored pencils or paint.
