Visual Art ~ Ms. Newstadt
Monday and Tuesday students are finishing up their Oaxacan Alebrije sculptures adding surface details and embellishments using pattern and repetition. Wednesday they will share their narrative stories and art projects with younger Sage artists (Mrs. Espinoza's kindergarteners). Visual Arts Process Journals are due by Wednesday morning for assessment in the four visual arts criteria for MYP: Knowing & Understanding, Developing Skills, Thinking Creatively, and Responding. 8th grade artists have done a wonderful job this year being open-minded inquirers, learning about new artists, elements & principles of design, and developing new techniques and skill sets for use over the summer and in HIGH SCHOOL! Wow!
