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!

Great Designs

The students spent the block finishing up their sketches for the Google doodle and many began transferring their best idea and design to the final paper. The theme, "What I Wish for the World," yielded some amazingly profound statements from the students on what they see as problems with the world and so many innovative ways to visually represent those ideas. Curing cancer, saving coral reefs and rainforests, ending pollution and hunger, affordable college education, and world peace were just a few of the things the students wished for the world.
I can only choose 6 designs to submit for the contest, and I can already tell I'm going to need lots of help choosing!
