Welcome to IB MYP Visual Arts at Norterra Canyon!
Hello and welcome to IB MYP Visual Arts at Norterra Canyon! My name is Mr. Snedden and I am very excited to have you in my class! We will be exploring the Elements and Principles of Art and Design through history, aesthetics, criticism, and (of course) production. We will take risks, ask questions, and celebrate our diversity! All assignments and feedback for our class will be available on Canvas however final grades are posted to PowerSchool where grades are officially stored.
For this class you will need the following supplies. It is a requirement that you bring them to every meeting in order to participate.
1” 3-Ring Binder
Drawing Pencils (HB, 4B or 6B, 2H or 4H)
Colored Pencils (more colors are better)
White or Pink Pencil Eraser
These extra supplies below are recommended for further enrichment but are not required. They can be useful to work on art at home but will be supplied while in class.
Drawing Pencils (6B, 4B, 2B, HB, 2H, 4H, 6H)
Fine and Ultra-Fine Sharpies
Oil and/or Chalk Pastels
