Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

 I am very excited to get to spend a good majority of the year with your students! I am very passionate about art and spreading creativity with others, so I bet that we are going to have an AWESOME year! I am so excited!

***Here is a “check-list” that all the students will be introduced to on the first days of class that they will need to be aware of all year long when they think that their projects are finished. It is my goal to have students use all the time they are given to complete marvelous works of art that they are proud of.

 

***Here is a sneak peak of what 6th grade artists will be working on hopefully the first day of class if I do not talk too much about rules and expectations! They will be learning about sculptures and refreshing about basic elements of art. I like to do something simple and fun in the first art class. I like the artists to start creating as soon as possible! No time to waste!!

 

This week was my first full week with all the kids! They are all so sweet and so much fun! I am very excited for what this year is going to bring. The Tuesday classes have already been busy creating because they have had 2 art classes already!

 

**Here is what you will see thus far in the art hallway!

 

Kindergarten First day of Art Class Self Portraits 

 

2nd Grade Getting to Know You sculptures

 

We have been very busy in Art Class these past few weeks! Here is somethings that we have finished…

 

Kindergarten created shoe fish! Ask them about how they drew it!!


 

2nd Grade learned (or was refreshed) about WARM and COOL colors while creating awesome cactus pieces!

 

Ask your 5th grader about POP Art and all our of candy nicknames for each other! These are looking AMAZING and they aren’t even finished yet! Can you figure out some of these logos?

 

Pre-K, Kindergarten, 2nd Grade, and 3rd Grade( not finished yet) all learned about Mosaics. Ask them what the paper likes the most. Really brightens up the space by the door.

 

1st Grade LOVED learning about sculptures AND iguanas! Now we have an attack of the iguanas!

 

Kindergarten has been learning about PRIMARY colors, so ask them what those are! We also read “I’m NOT just a scribble” and we created our own.

 

Pre-K has also been learning about colors and proper painting procedures! We listened to “I’m NOT just a scribble” and we created our own.

 

7th Graders finished their first project, and they look GREAT! Especially hanging with Pre-K’s self portraits!

 

1st Graders created AMAZING Piet Mondrian sea life! I can not wait until they are finished to display!

 

We will begin to create some great Halloween decorations for the month.

 

Here is first grade’s Piet Mondrian’s they finished! Aren’t they incredible!?


 

The 5th graders are enjoying working on their candy. We are having a great time in class!

 

Kindergartners worked on some fun little spiders to use as decorations in the lunch room for the October birthdays party. They were so excited!

 

Just a little time goofing around with the 4th graders while they are creating their zendoodle pumpkins!

 

Everyone has been hard at work on their part for our Halloween Hallway! All are hung up except for 4th grades pumpkins that will be hung up Monday! The art hall looks so SPOOKtacular!!

5th grade has been doing an AMAZING job on their candy projects! It was also hats day for red ribbon week! It was great seeing all the neat hats the students have! 

 

4th and 3rd grade has been working on learning about color mixing and making tints, tones, and shades, so ask them how to make each! 

 

 

With Pre-K we read Rainbow Fish and are creating our own rainbow fish! 

 

1st grade learning about Edvard Munch and his famous work The Scream. They are working on creating their own screams! 

2nd grade also learned about Edvard Munch and The Scream, so they also are getting into character and creating their own! 

 

Kindergartners also read Rainbow Fish, and they are making the wise octopus to go along with Pre-K’s rainbow fish! 

 

A Special guest artist wanted to drop by and say HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! Hope we are all making “happy accidents!” 

 

We were dashing into some fun winter projects the days before break! 

I hope all of you are having an amazing holiday break! I cant wait to see everyone back in January! 

     

 

 

We have been learning about Frida Kahlo in the elementary school! The students have been creating super awesome Frida inspired projects! 

5th grade is always super fun to have in class! We are always laughing. Look how talented they are!

                                     

 

Amazing 1st graders creating their amazing Frida inspired self portraits! They are so smart and have the best memories!

                   

 

3rd and 2nd grade made La Casa Azul. You should ask them what that is. They can tell you all about it!

 

 

4th grade learned about what a still life painting is, and they have been working amazingly within a group to create a large Frida inspired still life!
