The end of school schedule came out this week and it has changed things for us a bit. The last day to turn in your work has moved from May 22 to May 15. Everything needs to be turned in by the May 15 which is next Friday. I understand that his takes a week off your work time that is why you will not be required to turn in/show evidence of preliminary work. This excludes crafts. I do need you to answer the project questions in OneNote. They are the basis of the whole project. Please summit whatever you have done on your final project by May 15 whether your project is completed or not.  If you have any concerns or question about this please let me know. Remember OneNote is for preliminary work and OneDrive is for final projects. If you have any issues with either of these programs just email me the work.

Your mask photos are due today so please make sure you get those posted. The ones I have seen so far look great! The only problem is your faces are covered and I am having trouble recognizing one or two of you. If you could please put your name under your photo, it would help out a lot. You guys are starting the final project of the year due May 22. It is all about learning from others and how crafts are passed down through generations. I am really excited about this one. Read over the details in the class link.


Your first design challenge is due today. I can't wait to see what you have come up with. Remember, you have one due every Friday until May 22.


You should be wrapping up the preliminary work for your homemade paint painting about home project. The coming week should be spent working on a final drawing.

Any issues you have, please let me know so we can figure out the best way to overcome them together.

I hope everyone is well and not feeling too overwhelmed. You guys have been doing a great job asking questions and getting you work to me. I cannot express how impressed I am with everyone's artist reports. Just ready good work all around. This week I have a few major updates. First, I will be hosting (attempting to host) "Office Hours" twice a week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2:00-3:00 through MS Teams starting next week. This is on your Office 365 account and completely optional. The goal of this is to provide a platform for you to ask questions live and "in person". Pop in any time during those hours and I will be there. Come and go as you wish. Once again, this is completely optional. You can still send me an email Monday-Friday between 6 am and 2:30 and I will respond immediately. 2:30-5:00, it might take me a bit. 5:00-?, you might have to wait until the next day. The weekend, I am a spending time with my family and will get back to you on Monday. I will be sending out more information on how to log onto the MS Team meeting soon.

Second, Crafts and Illustration and Design have new projects. If you are in either one of those classes, please click the class in the left column and read over the instructions carefully. Everyone else, you have projects due at the end of next week. If you have not started on those, please read over the detailed instructions on your course specific page in the left column and let me know if you have any questions. Stay safe and look out for each other. Keep working hard as you have been so far and let me know what I can do for you to help you get through this. Go Johnnies!

All classes are to complete the Artist Report. Below is a list of selected artist. If your name does not appear on the list, you have not selected an artist or someone selected your artist before you. Email me at with the name of an artist that is not already claimed that you would like to research and I will put you on the list. The rubric, section by section breakdown, and examples of last semester artist reports are located below. Artist reports should be completed, uploaded to OneDrive, and shared with me before April 3, 2020.  All other coarse specific assignments will be provided on the course pages to the left but as of right now we plan to have school back in session after spring break so we are just focusing on the Artist Report. Additional course work such as the origami unit, the character portrait project, reaction paintings, and reaction sculpture will be added if the extend break continues.  If you have any questions, please contact me through my email and I will respond as quickly as possible.

Artist Report Rubric

Artist Report Rubric-This acts as a guide. There are 5 sections and various questions that fall within each category. Answer the questions in your report.


Section by Section Breakdown

Section by Section Breakdown This file breaks down exactly what each part of the rubric is saying and what you should include in your report in depth.

Artist Report Examples

Example 1- This is a PowerPoint from last semester that covers all the information need in the report.

Example 2- This is a Word document that is in a kind of outline format.

Example 3- This one is your straight forward essay format.

Example 4-This is a video.


All four of these examples covered the questions and scored well. This report is about finding, knowing, and presenting the information. The means of which you do this is up to you. Remember, you do need to submit your citations so please keep track of where you got your information as you work. It'll be much easier than trying to figure it out afterwards.
