My name is Jo Ann Harris and I teach art at Campbellsville Middle and High Schools. I have to admit, the CHS Specialized Art class has been a process over the last 3 years. It began as something that was very like General Art (identical in some ways). But it has gradually changed to a course developed to challenge and grow the more advanced student artists. For the 2018-2019 school year, Specialized Art will be designed to build on what was learned in General Art. Student artists should be beyond the basics of the elements of art and what materials can be used to make art. In the revamped Specialized Art class, students will learn to develop skills based on composition, color theory and art processes. Specialized Art students will work towards mastery of techniques and how to express themselves in an artistically coherent manner. We will also talk about art careers and ways to use art in the "real world". If you have ideas about something that you would like to try, tell me about it. Let's work together to have a great year! I am excited about the direction that this course is heading!
If you ever have any questions concerning a project, grade or something going on in class, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call me after school hours at 270-403-4733.
If you have Facebook, "like" our page with the ridiculously long name of Campbellsville Middle and High School Amazing Arts. I will be posting pics of student artists at work and play and their finished products among other information. Comment or like the pics so that students who monitor the page will see that you are noticing them and what they are doing in art.
