Dear Red Rocks Families, 
  
Order Original Works products now! The kids love this project, but love it even more when they get to see their own work on a coffee mug or t-shirt! Be looking for information to come home between 11/2 and 11/7.  
Important information about Original Works: 
- If you loose your child's paper, let me know and I can get you all the same information via email.  You will still be able to order until your heart is content!  
- Please do not send orders or money to the school.  We have no way to order or process money.  
- Have your order in through the online ordering system by November 15 to ensure delivery for the holidays.  
- Please let me know if you DO NOT want products sent home with your child.   

Contact me if you have any questions or concerns about grades.  My young artists have been working hard and their grades show it!  

I want to thank everyone who donated "trash" items to the art room.  It really helps!  Now, I am looking for any volunteers who would like to make yarn balls over the holidays!  I know, funny request :)  I am aiming to make a kid friendly yarn station so that my artists can access yarn anytime without trouble.  Unfortunately that means that my large spools of yarn need to be converted into smaller yarn balls and I just have a hard time doing that during the school day!  Weird, huh?  Contact me if you would like to help... even one color would be a huge lift!  

Thats all for now!  Keep warm.  - Mrs. Rose

Dear Red Rocks Families, 
  
The big news this month is that Original Works projects are coming to a close!  The kids love this project, but love it even more when they get to see their own work on a coffee mug or t-shirt! Be looking for information on this fundraiser in November!  

Also, big news is the start of Deconstruction Construction Art Club on October 8th!  I am so excited to be taking apart machines and discovering all the creative ways that we can put them back together.  There is still a bit of room in this club, so let me know if you would still like to reserve a spot! 

I will be available on October 8th, after school, during conferences if you need, or would like, to chat! 

I want to thank everyone who donated "trash" items to the art room.  It really does help!  I am still looking for L or XL appropriate mens t-shirts.  These will be used to protect clothes on the days we are getting extra messy!

Dear Red Rocks Families, 

We have only just begun!  Can you believe that I have only had your kiddos in class for a total of 3 hours and 40 minutes!  In that short time, we have learned about our first 5 elements and principles: line, color, texture, emphasis/contrast, and variety.  We have also started our first project...
  
Our first project this year is Original Works!  The kids love this project, but love it even more when they get to see their own work on a coffee mug or t-shirt! Please be on the look out for information concerning Original Works!  

Safety Note:  Please be aware of Playschool Crayons that you might have at home.  These have been found to contain trace amounts of asbestos.  Don't worry, the art room is clear of this brand!

Dear Red Rocks Families, 
I am getting ready for an easy going and fun school year.  This summer I spent some much needed time with my family and close friends.  We camped under the stars, admired Mount Rushmore, summited the Incline, played at Water World, and celebrated birthdays and anniversaries. I can't wait to hear all about your summer adventures!  

This year we will continuing work with art layered centers, the Art Elements and Principles, and choice-based art!  I look forward to exploring art at your pace and based on your interests! 

I can't wait to see you guys at Meet and Greet!

Artfully Yours, Mrs. Rose
