Teacher: Miss Lauren Balint
Welcome back to the 2013-2014 school year! I’m glad to be creating with all my new and returning art students. This year we will be using many different types of media, such as painting with watercolors and tempera, working with clay, weaving with paper and yarn, printmaking with objects, and drawing with glue and oil pastels.
During art lessons students will participate in art making, art history, critique, and aesthetics activities. Children will be looking at art (critique/art history) to learn about other cultures, places, artists and works of art. Students will be talking about art (aesthetics) to discuss meanings, ideas, feelings, and moods, and will be making art (art making) to create expressive visual images. In addition, most art lessons will be connected to other subject areas such as science, history, language arts, and mathematics.
Throughout the year I will display your child’s artwork in the halls, as well as, on our online gallery on Artsonia, which can be found here. (Please look for notifications going home later in the month about parent permission.) Towards the end of the year all students will be displaying their artwork at our Art Show.
