Gratitude to Cindy Ingram for curating this collection of images. Will you make any art to express your observation of this moment?

It's kind of cold for Earth Day, today, but I hope you get outside and appreciate nature today. Bring a mental photo back in your brain, and make some art, remembering what you saw.
Remember to try to take GOOD PHOTOS OF YOUR ART before you place it in your google doc that you submit to me. Crop them, adjust lighting, etc.
I hope you are all managing OK. I so miss our classes and your faces.

1. ALL WORK FROM YOUR CLASS PAGE THAT WAS "SUGGESTED" WILL NOW BECOME "WORK DUE" FOR PASS/FAIL GRADES.
The assignments will be listed in Powerschool for Quarter 4 and graded as they are submitted to me. Due dates are in PowerSchool, but just do the work when you feel inspired and I will enter your grade. If you haven't done the "suggested" work, go back to March 13 and start there.
2. I'd like you to start a google doc, where you can upload and share images of your work to me. I think that will streamline where to find all of your work and avoid me missing an email from someone.
3. I'm trying to find artwork that you can do from home, but if anyone wants me to prepare an "Art at Home" care package for them, please let me know by Wednesday. I can go into school and make up a bag and leave it for you at the HS meals distribution area.
I've posted new suggested work on each class page as of yesterday. Just to be up front, as we switch on Monday from "suggested" work to "required" work, my first assignments will be for students to do all of the suggested work posted March 17 - now. So, if you've been reading your class page but not really getting around to doing the projects, maybe you could start today?
Hope everyone is well! Miss your faces very much.
April 1, 2020 I hope you don't get pranked too hard for APRIL FOOL'S!!
Lots of people are using the social distancing time to revive their creative brains. I'm seeing so many posts about drawing and crafting together. I hope that you, as an Art student, are also using this time to make some art. One friend is doing a daily facetime call with her niece and they each make a drawing from the same prompt, then show each other their work. I love this idea of connecting with a distant family member while also working out your drawing muscles. I have a list of drawing prompts posted on some of my class pages (tabs at top of this page), but here is another one, if you'd like to challenge yourself.
