  • New Grades!

    Posted by Karma Wright on 9/2/2017 2:45:00 PM

    Grades are up for the self-portrait assignments we turned in before our "hurrication" began.  Overall, I was very pleased with everyone's effort.  Lots of insight into your emotions and personalities which, as we now know, is the point of a self-portrait!  I will always write some comments on your assignments and offer advice that could make your artworks more successful; hopefully, as we continue through the semester - and the year - you will take my comments to heart and they will help you grow as the fabulous artists you are!  Please don't be afraid to ask questions - I'm here to help you, to guide you, to teach you how to find your own unique artistic voice.

    Looking forward to seeing you all on September 6th!

    As Hurricane Harvey moves out of our area, I'm thinking of all of my wonderful students whom I've already come to adore.  I am hoping that each and every one of them - as well as the incomparable Harby faculty and staff - is safe, dry, and with loved ones.  I send you strength and happiness in this trying time, and I can't wait to see you all when we get back to school!  

    Be safe, Hawks!!

    Inspired by Edward Hopper's incredibly famous work entitled "Nighthawks," I am writing the inaugural post for "Art Hawks," the new Harby Junior High Art Department blog!  I welcome you all to read and comment - students, parents, fellow teachers.

    My hope is to fill this blog with HJH Art Department updates, photos, assignment details, exhibition and competition information, and art world news articles that we can read and discuss.  I welcome healthy academic debates in my classes, so your participation is welcomed and encouraged!!

    Help me make this a fabulous year for the HJH Art Department and all of our Harby kiddos!

    Go Art Hawks!
