|The Redlands High School Counselors want to encourage all our future parents and guardians to attend our annual 8th into 9th Grade Parent Night on Monday, April 10 at 6:00 p.m. in Clock Auditorium on the RHS campus. Topics to be covered included graduation requirements, registration forms, honors programs, summer school, student activities, and academic policies. The High School asks that you download and print the registration documents.|
The class is comprised of units in which students will concentrate 2-4 weeks of time working with a specific medium or theme in art. Within each unit, students will have time to experiment and be creative with the project. There will be requirements that the students must fulfill, but they will also have time to explore their own ideas and perhaps restart a time or two. Students will get a “problem” and they must come up with their unique solution within the given parameters. Examples of units include emulating (or somehow being finding inspiration in) the style of an admired artist, creating a ceramic box and a ceramic design of choice, a watercolor/ink project, and others. The first unit with be to create a pencil drawing using a full range of value.
Students are encouraged to go beyond the basic grade requirements if they have the time and push themselves creatively. Students admitted to this class were chosen because of their ability to accomplish more creatively and independently than the average student. The goal is for students to have time to investigate and improve their creative talents using a variety of materials and concepts.
For select units, student work will be displayed to the class along with an artist’s statement. Students will then write critiques on what they feel are the strengths and weaknesses of the art. These will be graded on how well the student expresses and supports his or her opinion. The artist will not see the individual critiques, but they will get comments from the teacher along with a summary of the most often given compliments or suggestions for improvement from classmates. These artist statements and critiques are meant to help students develop their own style and point of view as well as develop their abilities of discernment.
This is a two-semester class if both the teacher and student agree that the student should continue into the second semester.
