Art With Mrs. Castrigano *** Southeast Middle School
Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Junior High students learned about one point perspective in this lesson. First, they used pencils and rulers to create the vanishing point, horizon line, the basic outline of the street and the buildings. Next, they were asked to think creatively and add store names or designs to the city. Students were given the choice of using colored pencils or watercolor pencils for this project. The last step to this project, which was optional, was to use a thin black marker to outline and clean up some of the lines.
I am currently in my 7th year of teaching!! I teach art to 6th, 7th and 8th graders at Southeast Middle School. I have taught for 5 years in the Phoenix Elementary School District. I absolutely love teaching art and cannot imagine doing anything else! I enjoy painting in my free time and my artwork has been on display in restaurants and galleries in the Phoenix and Cleveland areas.
I attended Kent State University in Ohio. I majored in Art Education and received two minors in fine art and education. I graduated from High School in Ohio also, and was selected to participate in a professionally oriented Art Program. It was this program and the wonderful teachers that taught it that inspired me to become an Art Teacher.
