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.  

 

*We will be having our TES Art Show in the Spring of 2020, all artwork will be kept in the art room until this time, and will be sent home after the art show.  Please let me know if your child is leaving the school and I will send home all artwork before they leave.

 

*Please be aware that even though we use try our best to contain messes, accidents happen.  We will be using paint, glue, and other messy medias this year.  Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for art class.  “Dress for a mess, not to impress.”
