VISUAL ARTS ELECTIVE INFORMATION (Offered Trimester 1 & 3)
The Visual Arts elective will offer a number of exciting units, focusing on helping students foster and refine their skills, explore art media in-depth, and learn new techniques in a small group setting. In addition, we will take a number of field trips throughout the semester to have first hand encounters with art, and have visiting artists. We will host exhibits and collaborative performances (dates to be announced.)
TRIMESTER 1 ART NIGHT IS NOVEMBER 14th - more info coming soon.
Units in Visual Art will include exploration in the topics listed below, while allowing for independent exploration of themes and subject matter based on personal interest and taste. Students will have an immense amount of freedom in their work within these learning objectives, granted they are demonstrating mastery, responsibility and integrity. Students who are not able to maintain mastery through independent work will receive more support, with intervention as needed.
2016-2017 Elective Flash Back!
TCEA Visual Art: Street Art Unit combined with the Fayetteville Habitat for Humanity World Habitat Day Parade of Doors Art Service Project.
By the CEA Middle School Visual Art Elective, Fall 2016
Students learned a brief history of street art and techniques such as postering, wheat pasting, stenciling and freehand. They had a visit and demo from local artist, "Drip." They were then challenged to team up about a social issue of their choice, and created murals using the street art techniques for the 2016 World Habitat Day Parade of Doors with the local Fayetteville Habitat for Humanity organization, under the guidance of their visual art teacher, Mrs. Brownlee. The doors were auctioned for the H4H annual breakfast fundraiser, and students presented this video at their winter presentation in December 2016 as a recap of the unit.
