Hi....I have a couple of suggestions. Both 6th and 7th grades in my neck of
the woods have art in a rotation wheel for 7 weeks with other electives. We
make folders for each class to hold work and each is presented as a lesson
with art history included as well as P&E's.

I use the portfolios as a lesson in lettering; centering, 2 or 3 dimensional
letters, color, pattern, texture, etc., each grade level adds a new element
or level of decoration. Letters on a curve, letters in perspective, bubble
letters and so on. On the back a self portrait.
