I am so excited to be your child's art teacher. It is my goal to make art a fun and enjoyable experience for all students while they learn new content and techniques. Students will learn that art constantly surrounds them. Kindergarten and 1st grade students will discover the elements of art including line, shape, color, texture, space, form and value. We will also learn the proper way to use many art materials including scissors, glue, paint and clay! This year second graders will be traveling around the world and discovering how different cultures create works of art. Third graders will be learning how their art can be used to make the world a better place. Fourth graders will be traveling back in time to learn about art throughout history. We will use these trips as inspiration for the work we create. Students will keep passports, heart charts and timelines as a record of all the countries and times we have visited and the knowledge they have learned on our trips. I encourage you to discuss with your child where we are currently and make connections at home to our current art destination and time period!
I will also be creating a virtual web museum through Artsonia. Your child's artwork will be displayed here so friends and family from all parts of the world can view and comment on it. Be on the lookout for information coming home with login information!
