7th grade Earth Art Publishing Assignment

Now that you have taken your photos, you are going to publish them online. You have several different free options including blogger.com, webbly.com and wix.com. For this unit, I think blogger may be best as we don't need multiple pages for our sites. Here is a great tutorial on how to set up your blogger page:

 You will need to write an artist statement on your blog.

The artist statement should be the last things you post so it will be at the top of your blog, giving viewers an understanding to your work. Your artist statement should allow the reader to understand what you did and why you did it.

Your artist statement should cover the following topics:
 A brief introduction to Andy Goldsworthy's art work and earth art.
 An explanation to your own artwork including what you built, the process, where you built it, materials used, etc.
What happened along the way? (Did anything interesting or unusual happen? Did you solve any problems in the process? Did you change my approach to doing the project? etc.)
Did the project turn out how you expected? Why or why not?
What did you learn through the art project?
What would you do differently next time?
Use the elements and principles of design to describe your work.
 You can use all of your notes from the movie Rivers and Tides (20 facts & movie questions).
 You can also take photos of your field notebook for your blog.
