  •      Endangered  Species  Tile  Mural   Ceramics  I  Final  Project          Ceramics  I          Mrs.  Holtz  &  Mrs.  Duckworth     Here  is  your  final  challenge  for  Ceramics  I…   Being  an  artist  means  understanding  and  conveying  messages  through  visual   work.    For  this  final  project,  you  will  be  creating  a  low  relief  tile.    This  project  is   a  whole  class  project,  but  each  of  you  will  create  a  piece  that  becomes  part  of   the  larger  whole.    When  done,  each  low  relief  tile  will  be  used  to  create  a   classroom  mural.    The  theme  for  our  classroom  mural  is…       Endangered  Species:    A  plant  or  animal  species  existing  in  such  small  numbers  that  it  is  in  danger  of  becoming   extinct,  especially  such  a  species  placed  in  jeopardy  as  a  result  of  human  activity.    One  of  the  principal  factors  in   the  endangerment  or  extinction  of  a  species  is  the  destruction  or  pollution  of  its  native  habitat.    Other  factors   include  overhunting,  intentional  extermination,  and  the  accidental  or  intentional  introduction  of  alien  species   that  outcompete  the  native  species  for  environmental  resources.     Your  task:     PART  1:  Research   1. Review  PowerPoint,  project  sheet,  grading  and  expectations   2. Choose  and  research  an  Endangered  Species  –  it  could  be  a  plant  or  animal   3. Gather  reference  images  and  information  on  your  chosen  species   4. Print  or  draw  your  idea  at  actual  size:  6”x  6”,  and  be  sure  to  include  a  ¼”  border  on  all  sides     PART  2:  Project  Creation   1. Roll  a  thick  slab  from  terra  cotta  cone  06  clay  and  transfer  your  drawing  to  it   2. Begin  to  carve  and  add  clay  as  necessary  to  create  a  low  relief  design  on  the  tile   3. Prior  to  the  tile  becoming  bone  dry,  you  may  add  some  fine  details  with  stains  and  subtle  color  in  select   areas     PART  3:  Assessment   1. Complete  a  typed  artist  statement  and  reflection  for  your  final  work   2. Please  make  sure  that  all  pages  are  complete  and  have  your  name  on  them   3. Submit  your  sketchbook  pages,  rubric,  typed  artist  statement  &  reflection  along  with  your  final  tile     This  4-­‐part  Final  “Exam”  is  worth  20%  of  your  overall  grade  for  this  course.   Part  1  –  Research,  references  &  planning  is  worth  20%  of  final  “exam”  grade.   Part  2  –  Project  creation  is  worth  30%  of  final  “exam”  grade.  Part  3  –  Written/typed  Artist  Statement/Reflection  is  worth  10%  of  final  “exam”  grade.   Part  4  –  Multiple  choice  final  open  note  test  is  worth  40%  of  final  “exam”  grade.     This  project  is  a  final  exam  –  ideas/work  should  be  original,  no  part  can  be  turned  in  late,  no  additional   time  and  materials  provided.    You  will  be  required  to  solve  problems  on  your  own.    If  any  portion  of   project  is  not  submitted  by  the  due  date,  it  will  be  calculated  as  a  ZERO  grade.       Project  Due  Dates:   Research,  references  &  planning:    January  3rd  (AC  class)  and  January  4th  (BD  classes)   Final  project  creation:  January  15th  (AC  class)  and  January  16th  (BD  classes)
