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!

Voting on Public Art

Students participated in the voting for Public Art in Chattanooga today. We spent the class in the computer lab looking at the Hunter Museum's Website. The site has a section on the art now under review for the public to choose for placement in Miller Plaza downtown. That link is here. Chattanooga has a great history of supporting Public Art, and this opportunity to participate in choosing the work is a fantastic learning opportunity for students.

After researching a little about each piece of art and the three artists, students wrote a paragraph about each piece of art being proposed. Students then wrote a fourth paragraph describing their choice and why it's the best piece of art for that spot.

One of the proposed works of art above:
Stainless steel, 36 feet high x 12 feet wide x 6 inches deep
