Semester 2 - AiMS #1

So we are off to an amazing start with our AiMS #1 assignment, spring 2010! My AP students were to be inspired by the art of Karen Michel, manipulate paper in a creative way and use the lyrics of a song as the subject matter...I think you will be amazed at the results! The best part was during the crit presentations, as students shared their art, they played a portion of their song in the background...it was a super aesthetic experience!

AP students now have 10 AiMS completed and 12 HOT homework assignments done (higher order thinking)...they are on their way to putting together incredible AP portfolios! I think the concentrations are strong but they need to really work on their breadth work. The next AiMS should push them hard on their technical skills.

Check out a few here and please make sure to go to each AP student's individual blog spot, addresses are located to the right! Comments are, of course, appreciated and necessary as student's grow through the art of an honest Critique.
