Hello Hunters Glen Art Bears! Welcome to my Remote Learning Page!

First, know that I miss all of you very much and hope you are all safe and healthy while we are apart. No matter how far away we may be, I am still thinking about each of you and care very much.

Connecting to Google Classroom by Mrs. Posey

In Your Art Google Classroom you will find your art assignments and choices for each week under two headings: STREAM, or CLASSWORK. When you are in STREAM  you should scroll through all of the Art, Music, and P.E. options. You can choose anything for ART to do from there. When you are in CLASSWORK you will find specific assignments that I would like you to do each week. I will be posting new options for art everyweek.

  • Learn about and explore art from your home learning space or from your backyard? Here is a list filled with descriptions of some options you will be able to choose from for enjoying and creating art at home!

Student choices for exploring, enjoying and creating art might include any of the following:

  1. Art Contests: submit your art for cash prizes (check deadline dates and age categories)

  2. Museums and Travel: take a virtual field trip to museums around the world and even stream Operas on your TV

  3. Art Games: compete against yourself and others

  4. Digital Art: create art on your device

  5. Art Education: learn about art

  6. Art at Home: Art tutorials and prompts for you to create where you are and How to make your own art materials at home:

  7. Mindful Activities: Stay Socially and Emotionally Healthy

  8. Authors and Illustrators and Literature: Cross-disciplinary art Connections

  9. Math and Science: Cross-disciplinary art Connections and Lessons

  10. Origami and Paper Folding: Explore and Learn

  11. Architecture: Learning about and Creating Buildings of your own

  12. Art Materials Recipes for Supplies you can make at home: including salt dough, paint, glue, soap blowing bubbles and even homemade hand sanitizer for times such as this.

How to Select the Art Projeccts or Activities that you plan to work on for the week:

Go to your Google Classroom and explore your options:

  • ***Choose two or more art projects or activities to work on each week from the art links that are provided for you at the beginning of the week. You should spend at least 20 minutes a day working on a project or activity. You may spend more time if you choose to. The time you spend can be either exploring, reading about or doing some sort of an art project or activity. As long as it is related to Art, it counts.

  • Click on the art activity links and expore the links to decide which activities you would like to do for the week. You should work on your art projects or actvities for at least two and one half hours each week. You may take more time if you have time.begin enjoying art from your home.

  • Dear Parents:***Some of these art lessons can be self-directed by students while others may require adult supervision, guidance, or some assistance.

  • Some lessons are designed for an art classroom but can be adapted for a Home Learning Setting. Keep in mind that some of these lessons may require home variations by the self-directed, older learner or an adult.

  • Most of these lessons only require the use of simple white Xerox paper and simple materials you might already have at home.  Some lessons are indoor lessons, some are outdoor lessons, some are independent lessons and some lessons you may do with your brothers and sisters or with your whole family. Some lessons require the use of a cell phone for taking photos and such. Some lessons have video links or slide shows embedded for students to watch before starting the lesson.  

Advice to Students: Doodle! Research published in the latest edition of the journal Science challenges the anti-doodling stance. It contends that not only can doodling help students to learn, but that drawing is an important tool for scientific discovery.  Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. A 'beautiful oops!' can result in an amazing work of art.
