Thomas E. Weightman Middle School Visual Arts
The TEWMS art classes have a full and exciting year ahead of them. During this time each student will have the opportunity to explore many interesting aspects of art production, history, aesthetic, and criticism. In art class we will work on drawing techniques; improving and excelling all talent levels. My students are going to learn color theory and apply it to a number of different painting and drawing projects and exercises. All of your children will be exposed to sculpture, architecture, printmaking, weaving, ceramics, computer generated art, and all related vocabulary. All projects done in class will be assessed and sent home with your students.
I hold nothing but the highest levels of expectations from each individual student’s ability level. In art all learners work and achieve at different levels. Therefore my instruction is differentiated to meet the needs of all my students from the greatest drawing ability to the best reader. My art class is for every student who walks through the door; no one is left out.
I am looking forward to a great year with a lot of excellent work deriving from my classroom. Parents are always encouraged to stop in, email, or call. I am always available throughout the school day.
