Welcome to Art Room 161

This blog was created as an extension of the dialogue that began in our classroom and the purpose is to share creative ideas, images, and critiscm. All posts should be appropriate for the high school classroom and critiscm should be helpful and positive.

AP Art: Art History Research Project

In AP Art each student was given two artists to research and present to the class (the master list is below).  Next Wednesday and Thursday we'll have our written and visual test on the artists and Friday your reaction pieces will be due.  The reaction pieces shouldn't be done in the style of the artists but rather inspired by something in the artwork whether it's a technique, color palette, approach, or aesthetic feeling.
