I have been milling around the idea of developing a presence on the internet for a school website for years. I never really found anything I liked. Of course there are the myriad of blogs, wikis, etc., but for one reason another I did not find them to suite my needs. So, I discovered Google Sites, which for some reason, I like. I was not looking for anything intricate or fancy, just simple, streamlined, and efficient.
The intent of my post is to share with others in this forum. I won't include the particulars of my school, my experiences, philosophy, or the curriculum unless anyone inquires.
The site is still under construction, although it is viewable by the public. My plan is to get the ball rolling and update with many other aspects and elements including downloadable resources, calendars, content, etc.
In respect to the public accessibility of the site, I am not permitted to post full names of students. The artwork featured will only be recognized by initials and grade. The images can be clicked and enlarged. I encourage you to visit the 6th, 7th, and 8th curriculum pages to view grade level specific artwork for each level (descriptions of which I am editing so they may be rough, and I will include more artwork eventually).
As far as I know, there are few art educators that view and or participate within this forum. Although I have made few posts of student artwork here over the years, it was not my intent to necessarily post this link here. I am initiating this to reach out and connect with any other art educators and share art by young art students with anyone who may be interested.
So please click on the curriculum links, click on the artwork, explore what little is there, and ask questions or make comments.
