Welcome to Art
It’s going to be a great year in Art. I am looking forward to providing the opportunity for you to unleash your creativity and imagination.
This year we will have to opportunity to create artwork with a variety of materials. We will create drawings, paintings, and sculptures. We will also explore printmaking, fiber arts, and create art using technology. Also we will have a chance to create a project in clay..
In class students will learn about different cultures and their art, and to explore art history as well. Finally we will also get to know the work of influential artists of the past (Old Masters) as well as their contemporary counterparts.
Again welcome to Art class at Northside Elementary School. We have a busy year planned with a lot of fun activities. I look forward to working with you this year. Please feel free to contact me at any time via phone or email if you or your parents have any questions or concerns. My door is always open and I am happy to help. I look to a great year filled with creativity in the art class.
