Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!

I'm excited to kick off the school year! We have increased enrollment in art classes and I've been working hard to learn some new skills to bring to the classroom.

Middle and High School students will be bringing home a syllabus which parents are asked to read before signing a paper indicating you have done so. This is the students' first assignment.

Graphic Design students are asked to bring a 9x12 inch spiral bound sketchbook which will be used for both drawing and note taking. You can purhase a sketchbook at Walmart in Holton for about $6.

On Monday, August 21st, our school has an awesome Solar Eclipse activity planned! Art students will have the opportunity to respond to the experience in their artwork.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the art program at Jackson Heights. The best way to reach me is through email at Katie.Morris@jhcobras.net but you can also call the school.

Observing Hands in 2 and 3 Dimensions

 After 8th graders observed their hands through drawing, we practiced observing hands in three dimensions. The students followed along with a video where an artist made a 1:1 sculpture of her hand starting with a slab, adding, subtracting, and shaping. The sculptures were glazed in many colors and turned out pretty cool!

Art Club Christmas Ornament Fundraiser

We spent a chunk of the afternoon starting to glaze ornaments for the Art Club fundraiser. *The ornaments in the picture are not finished. :)
We will be selling remade ornaments Tuesday, December 1st at the Cobra Backers dinner before the Winter Pep Rally and at the basketball game Friday, December 11th- $5 a piece. We will also be taking orders for personalized ornaments ($7 a piece) which will be due Friday, December 4th. We are making ornaments for activities at JHHS and some more traditional Christmas ornament shapes. The ornaments could be personalized with an athlete's name and/or number, apple ornaments could have a teacher's name or a message added to it for a fun gift, or just about anything else. Please email Katie Morris if you have any questions.

Turn in order forms to a school office or to Mrs.Morris along with your payment. Checks can be made out to JHHS Art Club. Thank you!
