New Grading Policy

Don't forget the new grading policy: Every day late on an assignment will be a 10pt. deduction. You can turn in a late assignment to Mrs. Titus in the office. She will write the date on the back of the project for me to pick up on Thursdays. Use your time wisely; I will always give you plenty of time to finish each project. Good Luck. - Mr. Kelley

Class Grid Project #1

Well here it is. The class made a great effort at copying Michelangelo's God even though most of the class couldn't tell what they were looking at on their grid pieces. I think we all agree that once the pieces are together it is easier to tell what changes can be made to improve each section. For example, as we discussed in the critique, the pieces that catch our attention first are those that have great contrast; dark shadows and bright highlights. Some of you who volunteered to complete two separate grid pieces and still needed to spend a little more time working on them but everyone who turned in a piece has the option of reworking them for a better grade, if you choose. Since this will be proudly on display in the hallway for all to see, I would hope that each and everyone of you make your best effort at making your piece perfect. This is a terrific class project and I hope it will serve you well on our next project. See you all in class Thursday! - Mr. Kelley
