Welcome to the Francis Wyman Art Website for the 2016 - 2017 school year. Art class is once a week for 45 minutes. As in the years past, students will keep their major artwork at school until the Spring Concert and Art Show.
The three categories of Art Assessment are Participation, Concepts, and Skills. A child who follows directions, is respectful to all, uses supplies responsibility, and puts forth his best effort contributes to a harmonious environment for all. Understanding the Visual Concept refers to the main idea of an Art unit. For example the primary colors (red, blue, yellow) are mixed to create the secondary colors (green, orange, violet). Demonstrating creative growth evaluates a student's application of the Art Concepts. Many skills are repeated often (cutting & gluing), while some are used less (clay joining technique).
Remember in Art when you make a mistake ......it's an opportunity! Don't give up, make a new plan, and try again. You're the artist, and if something is difficult ...that's good. It means you're being challenged, and that is how you improve.
