1. Review the contents of your sketchbook: Look at each page and specifically consider the focus of each assignment...what did you PRACTICE and why?...What has studying ARTIST SPOTLIGHTS helped you to understand about why artists create and how/why art has changed over the course of history?...How is art similar/different in various GLOBAL cultures?....What can you learn from your ART COMMUNITY? What did you learn - and what connections did you make - by visiting exhibitions and hearing directly from those working in the field of art?....How is CURIOSITY essential to the development of creative and innovative ideas? Were the artists who we've studied and heard from this year curious people?....What does it take to CREATE? What visual problems do you have to overcome before you land a good solution? What goes into planning a work of art? How are you able to explain your artistic choices using the language of art? What is original art vs. copied art?
2. Review the contents of your portfolio: Look at what you did and consider HOW and WHY. Consider SUBJECT, COMPOSITION, AND CONTENT. PRAISE what you did well, consider POLISH for what could be improved, and QUESTION your process and the related outcome. Consider also what you would do differently in the future - and why. Review the related content and vocabulary to support your ability to deeply analyze your work.
3. Review the content of your art notebook: You took notes and kept the handouts that were given to you (hopefully)...take some time to review terms and concepts that have been covered this year.
4. Retake Quia quizzes, Semester Exam, (and for Art 2, the POST-test): Make sure that you are clear on the definition of all terms and that you are familiar with the art history that has been covered. Practice reading the questions carefully - and thinking through the answer choices with logic, based on all that you have studied.
5. Consider your GROWTH over the course of the year: You will be asked to ILLUSTRATE this growth through observational drawings. Drawings should be SPECIFIC to the prompt and THOROUGH. Use all that you know… if you don't show it, it cannot be assumed that you have learned it - and therefore cannot earn high marks.
6. Use the mosleyart.com resources (look at the menu on the left.): Review all the content areas that you think will be helpful to you. Consider carefully the Why Art? page....What does this information have to do with you and your work in art this year? How are these skills important in ANY class or in life in general?
7. THINK, THINK, THINK & APPLY, APPLY, APPLY. You have been practicing this stuff all year but if you do not take the time and care to think about it or to apply the necessary skills, you will be short-changing yourself.
8. Craftsmanship: This should not even need to be mentioned....but consider it mentioned.
