Gallery Forum: A Weekly Critique Blog
One of the major expectations of the Solon high school Visual Arts program is that students engage in the development of their visual vocabulary. The Gallery Forum is designed to facilitate a class-wide discussion regarding the elements and principles of design, techniques, skills and how Artists utilize these to facilitate their visual communication . Students will be presented with a new Artwork at the beginning of each class week and will be expected to write a full paragraph response to the weekly prompt. Discussion and reactions to classmate posts are encouraged. Please keep all comments positive and courteous.
Please use complete sentences and proper grammar. Text-speak leaves Mr. Koza confused and disoriented, and we simply can't have that. It is suggested that you first type your response in Microsoft Word, perform a spell-check, and then paste your response in Gallery Forum.
Gallery Forum will be assessed using the common district standards-based grading scale. A rubric for Gallery Forum is attached at the bottom of the page. Student responses/posts are due on the first day of each school week by 7am.
