Assignments for Monday, January 10, 2005

 

1.     View the PowerPoint presentation What Is Art?  Visit the website suggested there and take the MI test.  Bring the results with you on Monday.

2.     Participate in the Internet Scavenger Hunt.  Bring that completed page with you on Monday.

3.     Make a simple rhythm instrument, one you can either shake or beat, to use in the music workshop.

          3 of architecture – buildings, bridges, structures, etc.

          3 of nature – landscapes, animals, etc.

          3 impressionistic or still life – more artsy

7.     Read Cultural Arts and Multiculturalism.  Be prepared to discuss and ask any questions this may raise for you.
