3D Art is a studio-based course, where students will be learning both the theoretical and practical aspects of creating art. There will also be exploration in the history, cultural significance, and environmental impacts of creating art. This course will focus on 3 aspects of creating art: Purpose, Process and Product. The goals of this course, written in I statements, are:
I can create works of art that have purpose, and I can show how my work relates to artists of the past.
I can use a variety of tools and strategies to work through the process of creating works of 3D art.
I can create a portfolio of work that showcases the products of my learning and share it with others.
I can reflect on my work, and articulate my ideas, and share my ideas with others.
I can create appropriate and relevant comments on others artwork in digital galleries, and in person.
Major Assignments will include a combination of activities, discussions, and coursework. Grades will be based on portfolio, that will include all aspects of work in a major project. Students will have an opportunity to create projects in a variety of mediums of their own choice. There is also an inquiry project that students will be working on term-long. Information about assignments and due dates can be found in Teams.
Assessment will include a combination of peer and self-evaluation, and teacher feedback that learners can use to further learning goals. Final grades for this course will be based on a portfolio of 3 MAJOR projects and a BONUS inquiry-based project.
