We are looking forward to another fantastic year teaching your child to enjoy, appreciate, and create works of art. Efforts will be made to correlate art lessons with the academic core curriculum. We will look at and talk about major works/styles of art, as well as create our own masterpieces using the elements and principles of design. We will study various artists, art styles, and cultures from around the world.
Please make note of the day that your child attends art class and help them select clothing accordingly (we may use messy materials). Students may choose to bring a paint shirt to keep in their class cubby or locker, but it will be the student’s responsibility to wear the shirt to art class.
Artists are great scavengers and we are no different here at Blackman Elementary School. Please check your cupboards for some extra household and recyclable items on our wish list. We will use all kinds of materials for our art projects. Thank you for your ongoing support of our program.
