Students have finished their Surrealism Projects.
Many artists have found the study of anatomy as not only useful but essential in art studies. Even Leonardo Da’vinci studied the anatomy of his subjects before creating his final art pieces. Many scholars take the sketch of a ladies hands created by Leonardo to be a preliminary study for “Ginevra de’ Benci “. Hands carry a personality with in them this is why they are so fascinating. The only real challenge, then, is the complexity of this remarkably articulated organ: it’s almost like drawing a small figure onto a larger one, one doesn’t know where to start. Tenth grade students will begin this study by sketching the bone structure within the hands.
We should be finishing the first major theme of the course this week – Culture and Social Structure.
There will be a mini-assessment on the remaining issues covered in this area of the course at the end of this week/beginning of next week. Ample notice will be given as that date approaches.
Next up on the curriculum – The Individual in Society
This week we will continue to read 1984 by George Orwell. In this novel, we have seen the power of the secret police. Students will be working on research projects about special police forces that exist in history. We will also discuss the role that prisons play in our world today.
