  In Art 1 I give a written final with T/F and fill in. 60 questions. For Art 2,3,4, I give activity finals and they like them.

  Art 2 does a picture in which I cut it into small squares and number them on the back. I give each student the small square (1") and they have to enlarge it to (4"). They draw with pencil and will palace it on a big paper with numbers on it so they can see the picture.

  Art 3 uses phrases in music to tell the musicians how to play musical passages. They pick a word like Crescendo and will use craypas or colored pencils to create a nonobjective picture that visually describes this word.

  Art 4 Makes a monoprint on the desks. They look like those rorshak sp? tests and after three they stop. Pick one and make something out of the blobs. Nonobjective or representational it doesn't matter.

  Al these tests are for 80 min.
