Intro to Art-Letters

Intro to Art
Architectural Letters

After this project...

I can conceive and create works of visual art that demonstrate my understanding of how the communication of my ideas relate to the media, techniques and processes.

I can create artwork that uses organizational principles and functions to solve specific visual arts problems.

I can apply subjects, symbols and ideas in my artwork and use the skills gained to solve problems in daily skills.

Totem Poles

Just for fun, I found a quiz.  This might inspire you on what animal to use for the project.  Click on the link below.

Link:  What is your spirit animal?

After viewing the power point & taking notes visually and verbally, you will need to create 3 thumbnail sketches.

Also if you missed anything in class here is a copy of the power point.
