This week has also included participating in Mr. Soik’s Honors Humanities II class as they explored the principles of Roman civilization.  In a few weeks Marty will brainstorm with the students creative, “out of the box,” projects which they could potentially create to express what they have learned about Rome.  Below is a snapshot of the class work detailing the principles of Rome.  (To better understand what will eventually become their class assignment, Marty listened and served as a recorder for the discussion as you see below).

In addition to creating new art, on Thursdays, Marty is also sitting in with Mr. Soik’s 4th hour “Honors Humanities II” class as they study, among other realities, the art of Western Civilization.  Marty hopes to work with Mr. Soik and his class as they are learning to appreciate historic art forms, and perhaps, even express themselves and their learning with their own art this semester.  Below is Marty’s prep work for meeting with the class on Thursday, February 18th:
