Houses for Haiti

Final service project is creating an image to donate to Houses for Haiti. You will need to find/purchase a substrate (that means the thing you are going to paint/draw)to create this image on. These will not be provided by the art department. I'm expected to see amazing images, with lots of time, care and thought put into it. This will be graded.

I know that for most of you the end of the year is creeping up on you and that you are feeling done with school. Please take the time to go to this website and be inspired.

I'm really hoping that all of you will step up to the plate and take this project seriously, think about what others are going through in other parts of the universe. It won't kill you to spend $10.00 on a canvas and paint a beautiful image of a 'home' in hopes to raise money for a worthy cause.

I'm excited to see the results!

Off to the National Art Educators Conference

This next week I will be at the National Art Educators conference learning all kinds of new things and sharing our blogspot with other art educators. While I'm gone you all need to be working hard on your last concentration pieces.

There has been some confusion on when the AP Art Showcase is. The actual for sure date of the AP Art Showcase is April 29th, Thursday. You will display all your concentration pieces at the show.

You might want to begin bring that work in, getting it matted and ready for display. When I get back we will need to buckle down and be ready to rock and roll. The showcase is a great opportunity for us to celebrate all your hard work and show off what you have been up to. Ms. Burnham is creating postcards for the showcase and will have those done soon. You can invite all your family and friends for this great night. The event will go from 4 - 7 pm. You will be responsible for hanging, labeling and preparing all your own work. Each of you will need to bring a dessert for the evening, enough to share with at least 10 people.

Can't wait! See you all soon.
