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 21... Continuing research

Students will spend this week continuing their research on the Top 20 Works of Art to Know (according to Mrs. Mulloy). Each of the first 10 works (DUE WED FOR CHECKPOINT GRADE) should be investigated in at least 2 pages of the IW using the research guidelines given to students and posted here.

The second checkpoint for completion is Wednesday (1/25), the first 10 works are due. The next 5 works and corresponding IW entries, for a total of 15 complete, will be due next Wednesday (2/1).

In addition, all students are creating Artist Statements in their IWs. A guide for writing an Artist Statement can be found here. Artist statements should be typed and published to the correct folder on the wiki by FRIDAY (1/27)! Finally, students will begin working on a studio project while continuing their written and research work in and out of class.

Art 1 classes will be completing some drawing exercises aimed at refreshing our realistic drawing skills. Both group and individual grid drawings will challenge students to focus on drawing from reality instead of perception.

Advanced Art classes will be working on the 12 Peppers project. For this assignment, students will be creating 12 identical images on 4x4" paper of an everyday object as subject, creating each one using a different medium. All 12 pieces will be mounted to one board to create one work of art. As always, a full IW should accompany each project.
