Welcome to Art! More than anything " I love students!" My name is Jane Plieth and this is my 4th year here at Pierce. Previously, I was a GM Design Sculptor. LEAP OF FAITH-BUCKET LIST- and here I am! Thank you for allowing your student to engage in the unknown and discover themselves!
In art class we will be following the ELEMENTS OF ART and PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN to further our art knowledge. The first two weeks are an assessment time for me to get to know your students knowledge of art concepts.Then I will teach the elements and principles as they relate to each weekly assignment. This will include an introduction to the element/principle (vocabulary/description) , icebreaker/group project, and final artwork.
