    What happens in art class?

    In my class students are given the opportunity to express themselves through a variety of media. Throughout the year, we will cover all of the basic art concepts such as line, shape, color, and pattern through various art medias... including drawing, painting, coloring, and three-dimensional sculpting. We will also incorporate all of the core subjects and build strong ties between those subjects and the world of ART.

    I encourage you to visit the building to view your student’s artwork, which is frequently on display in the hallways. Although the finished product may not always be exactly what you might expect it to be, you should look beyond the artwork.  Look instead at the experience, the growth, the ideas, and the creativity that your child has expressed within the project and praise them for their effort!
