Exciting news! 

Per the State of Connecticut Department of Education, we have exciting new NATIONAL Visual Arts Standards that have been officially adopted by the East Hampton Board of Education! These standards are quite thorough and are parallel to the Common Core State Standards. Click the link below to read more about what Art Education is all about these days (along with creating masterpieces, of course)!

Now that all of the students have come to visit the art rooms during the month of September, and practiced our rules, routines, and procedures, we are diving into the world of art MEDIA! 

Our art lessons are designed with media in mind, to correspond with our art curriculum. We want our students to know how to manipulate and synthesize the various art mediums available to them throughout the school year. The more exposure and practice they get, the better they are able to create with them. So far we have been using materials like :

crayola portfolio series oil pastels
mr. sketch scented markers
crayola glitter, metallic, neon, multicultural, construction paper and traditional crayons
artist erasers
colored pencils
chalk pastels
cellophane markers
construction paper

this list will continue to grow as the school year goes on! And to think we have only been in art for one month so far! 

Our Artist Mission:

posted Sep 22, 2016, 1:37 PM by Carolanne Vining

We strive to teach the qualities of ingenuity, creativity, and problem solving with the visual arts. We stretch and guide our students through exploration of media, subject matter and ideas. We expose them to various cultures and art genres through art history; i.e. French, Chinese, Japanese, Native American, Mexican, African, African American, Italian, Spanish, American and more. Each student will have an authentic and unique journey through the artistic process as they develop their fine and gross motor skills, and exercise their problem solving, observation, and imagination abilities.
