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!

Week 19: A New Semester

All Art students begin this semster by reviewing the tardy and attendance policies, teacher expectations for students, a discussion of last quarter's generous grades, and writing reflections. The first refletion required in the IW is about 1st semester. Students will write at least a half page reflecting on how their time went, what they learned, did well, didn't do well, etc. Next, students will create a half page of goals for 2nd semster. What do they want to do, learn, improve on, accomplish, etc.? These reflections are due this week.

All students also begin preparing this week for the Top 20 Works of Art to Know (according to Mrs. Mulloy) research assignment they will be completing in and out of class. Students copy requirements for research into their IWs as a reference for each piece they will look up. Students spend time in the computer lab this week making wiki accounts, learning the Top 20 works, and beginnging their research to complete an IW about each. We will be working on this research for the next few weeks in class, and students must know all 20 pieces for their Final exam in May.
