Attention Art I students! Introduction to Printmaking

Your next lesson is on Printmaking. Through the lesson you will learn about the history of printmaking, learn about the different styles of printmaking, learn printmaking techniques and get to know some artists who created prints. To the right side of the page you will see 3 animated videos. Watch each of them. The first describes your assignment and the second is an example of what your completed assignment might look like. The third and final animation gives you directions on how to create your own animation.

Hardin County Fair 2012

This year Hardin Northern had 24 high school art  students enter their artwork into the fair; more than any year before! I am so proud of all of my students who entered artwork for everyone to see. You guys did a great job!

New to Art This Year!

Welcome to the Hardin Northern Art website! This website is designed to be an informative website for students as well as parents. On this website you will find links to all high school art courses and homework for each course. Because of this website all high school students in art classes I-IV will have the ability to  create an online art portfolio. Not only will this art portfolio be a way for family and friends to see what is going on in class, it will be a way to keep records of how students are doing in class and to track the progress they are making throughout the year. I am very excited for us to have this ability and am looking forward to watching the art website grow.
