Welcome Parents/Guardians!  Bienvenidos Todos Los Padres! 
    Art room
    --The stuff on the first two tables are areas where students tried to clean up spilled glue with wet paper towels.
    That clearly met limited success.  I have Mr. Clean Magic Erasers and scrubbers to clean it up next week.

    • What is Elementary Art Class All About?


      • All students will establish acceptance, respect, and rapport with classmates
      • All students will practice responsibility, independence, and personal-monitoring
      • All students will express ideas, thoughts, and emotions, especially those which help inspire change and overcome personal conflict


      • All students will understand, apply, and manipulate Elements and Principles of Art
      • All students will integrate arts language into personal vocabulary
      • All students will investigate and extract inspiration from famous artists and paintings
      • All students will use the Arts to relate and synthesize the PA Common Core Standards


      • All students will handle materials, equipment, and tools safely
      • All students will describe, analyze, interpret, judge, and discuss artworks
      • All students will produce quality paintings, drawings, crafts, sculptures, prints, graphics, and installations
  • Hawkativities - Assuming these happen several times - the first one, instead of "free draw" is "free paint" - Keep it school appropriate and be kind to the art supplies! I have seveal other ideas planned for future hawkativities.

  • STUDENTS: Grading section of website has an update to "participation". Some probably know the update already - those who don't - double check "Grading", and look at "participation".
