In Studio Art it's Scholastic Art Week so we'll be taking on one of the AP Art summer assignments:
A Day In Your Life - Choose a moment from your everyday life and express it visually using any media. This can be a moment that’s memorable or very average, reoccurring or just a moment you remember. Try to use media that helps illustrate the moment and think about your perspective vs. others when creating the imagery.
Also make sure to study the class Quizlet for the quiz on Thursday and Friday!
