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!

Happy Monday

Today was a great start to a new week. Students presented their wikis today in class. There were some outstanding presentations, and many students had some great insight on the artwork they chose. Many students made connections to their knowledge of American history and shared some outstanding interpretations of the works of art. I was impressed by how much biographical information the students found about the artist to deepen their peers understanding of the artwork.

In honor of College Week at SMMHS, students also contributed a major and college they are interested in to our wall of "Colleges and Careers." We will spend the week looking more closely at Art and Design- related majors and colleges which offer these programs!
