Elements and Principles of Art

Students will continue reviewing the Elements and Principles of Art by creating examples of each one in their sketchbook.

VOCABULARY

 ELEMENTS OF ART: The visual components of art such as, color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value.

Line: An element of art defined by a point moving in space. Line may be two-or three-dimensional, descriptive, implied, or abstract.

Shape an element of art that is two-dimensional, flat, or limited to height and width.

Form: an element of art that is three-dimensional and encloses volume; includes height, width and depth (as in a cube, a sphere, a pyramid, or a cylinder). Form may also be free flowing.

Value: the lightness or darkness of tones or colors. White is the lightest value; black is the darkest. The value halfway between these extremes is called middle gray.

Space an element of art by which positive and negative areas are defined or a sense of depth achieved in a work of art.

Color an element of art made up of three properties: hue, value, and intensity.

  • Hue: name of color
  • Value: hue’s lightness and darkness (a color’s value changes when white or black is added)
  • Intensity: quality of brightness and purity (high intensity= color is strong and bright; low intensity= color is faint and dull)
  • Texture An element of art that refers to the way things feel, or look as if they might feel if touched.

PRINCIPLES OF ART: Balance, emphasis, movement, proportion, rhythm, unity, and variety; the means an artist uses to organize elements within a work of art.

Rhythm: a principle of design that indicates movement, created by the careful placement of repeated elements in a work of art to cause a visual tempo or beat.

Balance: a way of combining elements to add a feeling of equilibrium or stability to a work of art. Major types are symmetrical and asymmetrical.

Emphasis.:a way of combining elements to stress the differences between those elements.

Proportion: a principle of design that refers to the relationship of certain elements to the whole and to each other.

Gradation: a way of combining elements by using a series of gradual changes in those elements. (large shapes to small shapes, dark hue to light hue, etc.)

Harmony: a way of combining similar elements in an artwork to accent their similarities (achieved through use of repetitions and subtle gradual changes)

Variety : a principle of design concerned with diversity or contrast. Variety is achieved by using different shapes, sizes, and/or colors in a work of art.

Movement:  a principle of design used to create the look and feeling of action and to guide the viewer’s eye throughout the work of art.

Carta de bienvenida y sistema de evaluación 2018 – 2019

 

Tegucigalpa, 8 de agosto de 2018

Estimados padres de familia:

Es un placer para mí saludarles nuevamente y darles una cordial bienvenida a la clase de español. Me gustaría presentarme soy Jazmín Avilez he trabajado en Discovery School por doce años. Estaré trabajando con los  grados de noveno, décimo, undécimo y duodécimo.

En febrero de 2011 obtuve el título de maestría en Estudios Multidisciplinarios con la Universidad de Buffalo, New York. Tengo una licenciatura en la enseñanza de idioma extranjero la que obtuve en la Universidad Pedagógica Nacional “Francisco Morazán”. He enseñado español como segunda lengua y también tengo experiencia enseñando español y literatura como asignatura en los grados de secundaria. Este es décimo  año   enseñando el programa de Literatura y  Cultura,  curso avanzado, que toman los estudiantes de último año para obtener créditos en la universidad.

Estoy muy entusiasmada de comenzar este año 2018 – 2019  y quiero contar con su apoyo  para que juntos obtengamos excelentes resultados. Estaremos estudiando temas relacionados a la literatura, gramática, ortografía, redacción y análisis de textos de acuerdo a cada grado.

Se asignará un libro para leer por parcial. El objetivo de la clase de español en secundaria es afianzar y ampliar los conocimientos adquiridos durante la escuela media.

Se evaluará a los estudiantes de la siguiente manera: controles de lectura, informes y proyectos del libro  asignado en cada parcial como también se evaluará la puntualidad  responsabilidad y creatividad.  En algunas ocasiones tendrán  tareas de vocabulario, investigaciones y de redacción. En cada parcial tendrán por lo menos dos pruebas de conocimientos de los temas estudiados.

Nuevamente bienvenidos, estaré atenta a cualquier pregunta que tenga al respecto.

Si desea tener conferencias conmigo tengo disponibles dos períodos para poder atenderles. Les agradecería programar su cita con previa anticipación. Mi dirección de correo electrónico es javilez@discoveryschool.edu.hn  y mi blog  donde Ud. podrá estar más informado de las actividades de la clase.

Agradeciéndole de antemano su comprensión y colaboración.

Atentamente

Ms. Jazmín Avilez

Introductory message – Mr. Stewart (Psychology)

August, 2018

Greetings, and welcome (back) to Discovery School.

I am Mr. Ian Stewart and I will be teaching all high school social studies classes for the 2018-2019 school year. I am excited to be starting my second year at Discovery School and am looking forward to building on the progress that I and the students made last school year.

This year, I will be teaching the following subjects:

9th Grade – World History (Period 2)

10th Grade – Psychology (fall) and Sociology (spring) (Period 1)

11th Grade – Economics (fall) and Philosophy (spring) (Period 5)

12th Grade – United States History (Period 7)

Selected 11th and 12th Grade Students – Advanced Placement Human Geography (Period 4)

To help make the upcoming school year run as smoothly as possible, here are some standard policies and procedures that will be in place throughout the school year . . .

  1. Grading Policy

Grades will be determined based on the following formula:

Homework – 20%

Homework is due at the beginning of the school day. Late homework is subject to a points deduction (-10% for the first day, -20% for the second day). Homework that is more than two days late will receive a score of zero and will additionally generate a detention in order to provide the student the time to make up the work.

Students who have an average test score at or above 92 will be exempt from homework as long as that average is maintained. Since the homework is designed to provide opportunities to reinforce/master the material, a student who demonstrates mastery through his/her own independent efforts will be excused from homework.

Classwork/Engagement – 40%

This portion of the grade covers all classwork and participation elements of the course. Students are expected to have a dedicated single-subject notebook for the class. Students may take notes on a laptop computer with prior permission from Mr. Stewart, and this permission is reserved for students who have demonstrated the maturity necessary to not use their devices as a distraction.

Students are expected to participate in class debate/discussion when appropriate. Perfect scores for classwork/engagement can only be earned by students who are consistently making contributions to the class. Being present and doing the work is a big part of this grade, but perfect scores are reserved for students who consistently lead through their example.

Assessments – 40%

This portion of the grade covers all formal assessments (tests/quizzes/extended analysis). Exams will be announced in class, on the blog, and on the board on the second floor. Review sheets will be distributed prior to each exam.

WHAT IF THIS METHOD DOESN’T WORK WELL FOR ME??

I am happy to work with any student to design an instruction/assessment strategy that yields meaningful work and meaningful learning. The end product will be the result of us working closely together in designing your custom approach – it is NOT just a matter of you saying you don’t like tests and leaving it up to me to guess what to do instead.

In the absence of an agreed-upon high-quality substitute, the expectation is that all students will be following the curriculum that I have designed.

2. Make-up work in case of absences

Opportunities to make up missed work will be given to students who bring an excuse note from home (if absent 1-2 days) or doctor/medical office (if absent 3 or more days). Students who will be absent due to school activities (ABSH or AASCA events, for example) are eligible for make up work, but work that is due the day you leave for your trip MUST be turned in that day.

Make-up work must be submitted in a timely manner. (within a few days of your return)

3. Making up missed exams

Students who have excused absences from exams/quizzes are eligible for make-up exams based on the following schedule:

  1. a) If absent for one or two days, the student will make up missed exams/quizzes on the day he/she returns to school.
  2. b) if absent for more than two days, the student will make up missed exams/quizzes after a two-day “readjustment period”.

Questions or Concerns?

You can reach me via e-mail (istewart@discoveryschool.edu.hn). I am also happy to meet with you in person at school . . . please contact the school to arrange a meeting.

In this lesson plan, students design and construct a 3-dimensional letter using one of their initials. The surface can be decorated with descriptive words and images that are personally meaningful and unique to the student’s identity. The finished letters are hard and durable.
