Yesterday we "tied" and today we "dye!" If students did not yet bring in a white shirt for tie-dying (**see in previous post below), they can still bring tomorrow. Each advisory is a different color, our "uniform" for team building activities throughout the year!
We are also working on Non-Traditional Self-Portrait projects. These will be due at the end of next week!

Students just completed the Crazy Creature partner challenge in class yesterday (see a few examples on Instagram: artwithmsrobertson) utilizing the Elements and Principles of art and design mentioned for previous assignments and adding TEXTURE, UNITY, and VALUE. Some students brought this home to complete for homework, due THURSDAY, September 26 without penalty. If handed in after that date, points will be deducted.
Today we are beginning symbol sketches of items that represent us and putting them into thumbnail sketches. This brainstorming session is to get the creative juices flowing for our Surrealist/Non-Traditional Self-Portrait project.
**Lastly for this entry, I asked all classes to bring in a white, short sleeved t-shirt in a gallon sized ziploc bag with name written in sharpie on the outside, DUE WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2 when we will begin making tie-dye t-shirts. Shirt does not have to be new (I told students I like to use one that already has a stain that I wouldn't wear anymore--make it new again!). If it is not possible to bring a white tshirt for tie-dying, please have a parent/guardian contact Ms. Robertson!
Looking forward to seeing parents at OPEN HOUSE tomorrow!

Students are now creating art folders with their names in block letters. In addition to utilizing color and contrast (carrying forward from our previous assignment), we are tying in the design principles of PATTERN and BALANCE.
August 28, 2019
For the first two days of class, students will use their names, along with COLOR and CONTRAST to create a bold design on 3 x 9 inch paper. The rectangles (or "bricks") will be used in a larger team MURAL display. The final class day for this will be Tuesday, September 4!
Welcome to 7th grade art!
Students are usually very excited to learn that Ms. Robertson does not give homework as a regular practice. If a student has art homework this means one of two things; he or she did not fully utilize class time to complete an assignment so classwork has become homework, or he or she works hard every minute of every class but is so meticulous and careful that time runs out before the group needs to move on. Either way, all students are given the opportunity to complete at home without penalty as long as the assignment is turned in by the homework due date.
See the list to the left, under Assignments/Homework, to see what students are working on, in-class due dates for assignments and projects, and homework due dates if in-class work needs to be completed at home.
