I hope the new school year is off to a great start for everyone. Classes have begun smoothly in the Art room. As I have been meeting with all the classes for the first time this year, it has been interesting to hear of the student's summer art adventures. I was impressed and pleased with how many students reported that they saw art in some manner, this summer.
In addition to catching up with students on their first art class of the year, students in grades 1-5 have been creating their art folders for the year, in which they will store all the artwork created this year. These folders will go home in June. In their second class, students in grades 2-5 will be creating their own sketchbooks for use during observational drawing and painting activities throughout the year. These classes used said sketchbooks for their first activity of the year. Each grade explored a different aspect of drawing and/or working from observation from a still-life arrangement. Results can be seen in a separate post.
