Art 7 Course Overview
With the right foundation, creativity can flourish. In seventh grade Art, learners build the groundwork for their art by practicing unique exercises to develop drawing, painting and mixed media skills. Incorporating their understanding of composition, design, colors and forms, learners use the appropriate materials and tools to work from realism to abstract.
Projects & CRitiQUE
what will we be learning?
THIS IS ART Learners build the groundwork for their art by practicing unique exercises to develop drawing and mixed media skills. Incorporating their understanding of composition contrast and the elements of art, learners will use the appropriate materials and tools to create a Japanese Notan paper cut out. They will communicate what they have learned in a critical response to their own artwork.
This is Color After exploring the Fauvist Movement and artists such as Henri Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh and Andy Warhol; you will create an original artwork. You will incorporate their understanding of composition, colors and forms, and will use the appropriate materials and tools to create a painting. You will communicate what you have learned in a critical response to their own artwork.
This is Mixed Media In this unit learners build the groundwork for their art by practicing unique exercises to develop mixed media skills. Incorporating their understanding of composition, design, colors and forms, students will use the appropriate materials and tools to work from realism to abstract.
This is Portrait Painting Learners will describe the influences in the Post-Impressionism art movement and give reasons for how these influences affected style, mood and meaning in the artwork. Learners will choose a post-impressionism artist and replicate the artist's style in a self-portrait.
This is Perspective Learners will explore the Surrealist art movement and artists such as Salvator Dali, Andre Breton, and René Magritte. Learners will gain basic practical experience of working in different media, such as lead drawing pencils, colored pencils, and modeling compound. They will learn about different ways to use perspective drawing techniques. They will learn to recognize how artists make use of these techniques. Learners will learn to articulate their own artistic choices and to analyze the choices made by other artists in the critique lesson. They will respond to their own Surrealist artwork in a critical response.

I provide detailed feedback for each and every learner’s project for the semester. If you ever see a grade that is low or lower than expected, please press the word bubble icon on that assignment. (As pictured below) Once this opens up, you can read the feedback for that specific project.
Grade improvement plan
process for improving grade throughout the semester
Projects are weighted the most out of all assignments we have throughout the semester. They can be resubmitted for a higher grade at any point before the course closes.
To resubmit a project, please send it to directly Mrs.Swoboda through webmail
If a project was submitted blank, has irrelevant files, or images from the internet, it will be graded as a zero. Feedback will be provided on that project of why it was scored a zero along with helpful information on how to improve the grade, demonstration videos and my contact information.
Quiz retakes can be requested through Mrs. Swoboda's webmail in the following format:
- Unit #
- Lesson #
- During Guided Instruction I will demonstrate each step of the project live in class
- The Project Demonstration Video Library has all the steps for each project stored and is accessible throughout the semester (link on the right)
- If you are still struggling with any projects, please reach out to Mrs. Swoboda and a one-on-one zoom meeting can be scheduled.
There are a few chances to see how to do each project;
