Welcome to Art, the third option course of grade 62 of our Option Wheel. My name is Alejandra Fleischer, for those of you who do not know me, I will be your Assistant Principal and Teacher this year. We have already begun to explore some concepts like changing flat forms to 3-D forms and exploring one-point perspective. It is my hope that in this class you will get to experience the joy of art and the many opportunities to understand the benefits of art in our daily life.
Students will receive the course outline:
ART Course Outline
Sra. Alejandra Fleischer
The Art program of studies allows students to become creators, historians, critics and consumers of art through three general outcomes (drawing, compositions and encounters with art).
The Art program will expose students to various mediums (which may include but is not limited to pencils, charcoal, ink, acrylics, water color, etc). Each project will expose students to the process of decision making, through composition and finally reflection of the process. Through this approach students become aware of their intentional choices as artists as they acquire new skills to achieve their desired effect.
Assessment and Evaluation:
Assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning and its purpose is to improve student learning. Student achievement is assessed against clearly articulated learning targets and criteria for success and does not include deducting marks for late submission, awarding bonus marks, scaling, or distributing marks on a normal distribution/bell curve. For this course, student achievement is reported formally on the final report card for 2020-2021, however, course progression and updated marks will be posted on PowerSchool regularly.
