Sub Lessons Wednesday, Dec.10, 2014

Oops! Looks like our meeting is after lunch, not before. (I had posted lessons for morning classes, here are lessons for afternoon classes.
7th Grade ART (per.5)
I should be back by or just after lunch, but they should read silently (D.E.A.R. Time) until 12:12PM.
Students should complete a self-critique & aesthetic scan about their recent work illustrating the poem 'a visit from St.Nicholas." When they're finished, have them put hem in the yellow box. They may use the remainder of the class period to free-draw or as a study hall. I think Maddie may still need to complete her artwork.

8th Grade ART (per.7)
Students should continue working on their Grant Wood American Gothic parodies. They may begin coloring/painting today. Remind them to start with the background and move forward. Please have them clean up 5 minutes before the end of the class period.

Yearbook (per.8)
We've had most of the class absent this week, so good luck.
Yearbook I ( Jared, Brandon, Liberty, & Zach) have a Test today (I'll print it off & have it on my island for you. Remind them that their notes & Activities 14.1-4 are due today- have them put them all in the yellow box when they're finished.
YRBK II ( Frank, Jake, & Sadie) need to work on pages in yearbookavenue.jostens.com.

DRAWING: Copy of a Courbet Self-Portrait

To get acquainted with the concepts of value, shading and "light-logic," Read pp. 194-204 in Chapter 10 of DRSB. Then focus in on and follow the directions found on pp. 200-204, copying Cobert's self portrait into your sketchbooks. DUE Monday, Dec. 8.

  • Use shading, not line
  • Make sure you have adequate density, contrast, and range
  • You may want to draw it upside-down to engage your right-hemisphere mode of thinking
  • You may use either figure 10-10 on page 203 or figure 10-3 on page 197, whichever you think would be more helpful
