The Art curriculum at the AJA is based on the Elements and Principles of Art and Design.

Our first element of art and Design this year is Space.

This year international Dot day is on September 15th. Our first Art project for this year is “Dots” We looked at space, shape and color.

We started off by having a discussion about the connections between Science, Technology, Engineering, ART and math. For our first Art /math unit we are look at the Fibonacci’s sequence. Once the students understood the idea behind his theory we drew it out on graph paper. We then colored each increasing square in a different colored marker on paper.

We then read the book “The Dot” by Peter Reynolds. The middle school artists created their very own interpretations of “A Dot full of dots” using a compass and different colored papers in the same increasing ratio as the Fibonacci sequence.

Come by and admire the AJA school wide “Dot” show in the Hallways in September.IMG_1153
