New Forms
Grades 11,12: 1 CreditInstructor: Jocelyn BocchinoJocelyn_Bocchino@hcpss.orghttp://RHScreativeNF.blogspot.com/
 What it says in the Course Book:
Prerequisite: B or better in Art IStudents will research the work of contemporary artists employing studioprocesses such as collaboration, digital technology, installation, inter-arts,mixed-media, performance and site specific works. The search for personalmeaning and student artists' intention provides a thematic centerfor making works of art based upon themes of celebration and community, bothglobally and locally.
 What this will mean for you (OBJECTIVES):Quarter One
: Students will learn how to think visually, from gathering and generatingideas to working with non-traditional materials. We will learn purposeful ways to presentideas through simple building processes and installation set-ups.
Quarter Two
: Students will explore the heart of digital technology by using web-basedand image-based programs to express personal ideas.
Quarter Three
: Students will integrate technological and material based studio practicesthrough the response to thematic based ideas. Students will respond through mixed-media,performance and site-specific work.
Quarter Four
: Students will use the ideas and materials explored throughout the year inorder to define their personal intention for making works of art.
New Forms is a unique class that offers you and I the opportunity to experiment with a variety of materials and themes. This class requires an open mind and a desire to take risks.The nature of risk taking means that things will go wrong. This is OK, even expected. Hereis what I am expecting of you (AKA how you will pass with flying colors):1.Document your process (through material attempts, notes, and journals)
Keep an open dialogue with classmates and instructor. In the case of an artemergency, all extensions must be discussed with instructor at least 3 days prior tothe due date. Provide documentation (see expectation 1) and your plan for a secondattempt.
Remain willing to retry, restart, or overhaul an idea.4.Do not show up to a critique empty handed! LAST MINUTE, HALF HEARTEDPSEUDO-ATTEMPTS WILL BE GIVEN AS MUCH ATTENTION BY ME AS WASGIVEN TO THE PIECE. YOUR GRADE WILL REFLECT THIS.
Strive for careful craftsmanship. You will be working with many materials for the firsttime. Take the time in and out of class to experiment and research the mostpurposeful way to work with the material WELL IN ADVANCE OF A DUE DATE.This gives all of us the opportunity to work through difficulties together.
Effort and risk taking is rewarded. Though strong craftsmanship should always beattempted, don’t be afraid to take risks, experiment, and have fun!
: Homework will be given on a daily, weekly, and quarterly basis. Each student will complete a minimum of 10 entries per quarter in an altered book. These entries will bea platform for idea generation and material experimentation. Students should also be
prepared to research contemporary artists, provide written responses to contemporary themes, and expand knowledge through chosen readings. Student’s personal experiencesand reactions will also be called upon as a way to generate ideas.
 What you should already know:
 Behavior Policy:
All school wide rules and policies are in effect, in addition:-No food or drink on any occasion, even if it is a holiday, your birthday or any other day  you might consider special, is permitted in the studio, this is for your safety as well asthe safety of the work of others.-Experimentation is part of learning; however, do not disturb the work of others or usematerials in an unsafe manner.-Be responsible; remember that others are depending on us and us on them to keep theequipment in working order. You must clean up after yourself. You are responsible for your assigned materials, please keep them safe and clean. Do not waste supplies!!! If  your materials have been misused or damaged in any way you will be held accountable.- For some people, conversation helps them to make art; for others, quiet, focusedthought is best. In this class, talking quietly while you work is okay – as long as yourconversation is not adversely affecting your work, or the work of those around you. I will be the judge of how much is too much!- Any spills or accidents with materials must be promptly cleaned up. (All students whoshare space at a table are responsible for that table and are expected to help clean upany messes, even if they are not personally responsible.)- Critiques are an opportunity to gain feedback and provide helpful commentary for your fellow artists. Treat others with respect by thoughtfully reflecting on their artwork.Intolerant, immature, and/or purposefully mean comments will not be tolerated.-Due to the nature of this class, students may be in different areas doing different thingsat one time; therefore you must behave in a mature and responsible manner. Immature behavior can include but not be limited to: misuse of equipment, damage of equipment,horse play (running, pushing, hitting, wrestling, fighting) dangerous use of materials(splashing, throwing, consuming), abusing other students’ work. If you fail to do so, you will receive the following consequences:1

**Severity of behavior may result in multiple or more severe consequencesRequired Materials:-
 You are required to have a useable #2 pencil, with an eraser, EVERYDAY!!!
: Students must have a holding place for notes and brainstorming material.The notebook will be used for class notes, image collection, sketches for idea development, journaling and critiques. The notebook will be graded. This can be a spiral bound notebook 
or a binder/folder to use with computer paper.
 As an artist, I highly recommendusing a spiral bound sketchbook 
(9x12 inches). However, it is not required.Sketchbooks can be found at local arts or office supply stores such as Michael's, OfficeDepot, Staples, JoAnn's, etc.-You may also want to bring in an art smock or an old oversized shirt to protect yourclothing.

Missing nine or more days may result in denial of credit for this course. In order tomake up work, an excused absence note must be received within 2 days of returning toschool.
