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!

Calder Mobiles... Week 12

Students asked themselves how Physiscs relates to Art this week as they learned about Alexander Calder and kinetic sculptures. After researching the artist and art form, the students watched a brief demonstration video detailing how to make three different styles of mobile sculptures. Students then designed and created their own tree, articulated, or spiral mobiles out of sculpture wire and found objects or painted cardboard.

Progress Reports go out Friday, November 13!
