If you are are a seventh grader who is interested in an all year CSMS art program, extension art is the perfect activity for you! This blog is going to inform you on extension art portfolios, projects, and more.

Let’s start with auditions…

When the year is coming close to an end, that is the time to talk to

Mrs.Fischer(CSMS art teacher) about the extension art program. Mrs.Fischer has you gather a portfolio with your best artwork. The portfolio doesn’t have to have certain types of drawings,    and your drawings don’t need to have certain medium. A good piece of advice is to not put too much thought into your portfolio art. I randomly drew things until some of the drawings came out really good.

Now let’s talk about expectations…

The Carl Sandburg extension art program is very similar to Mrs.Fischer’s art class but very different at the same time. You are more independent than the regular art class because Mrs.Fischer has to teach the other classes. Another thing that is different is that you sit on the opposite side of the room, and you stay in the program for the whole school year. For every project you create you are required to write a reflection on the project.

Finally, let’s talk about all the fun!

Since you have a separate extension art supply list all of your art supplies are shiny and new, and you don’t have to search through a bucket for your oil pastels. The extension art classes get fresh new paints and you don’t have to use the old paints.

    This is very good blog. It can definitely help 7th graders that are interested in the Extension Art program get some information, and maybe they can start working on it in advance.
