WELCOME TO ART CLASS!

Here we create awesome artwork!!  
Please check out our Artsonia website to see all grades and their artwork.  If you have a changed email address please let me know or you will not receive your child's artwork on line.


This school year I will be posting artwork, websites, and other art information.  If anyone finds a great art resource, please let me know and I will add that to my list!

I am looking for a volunteer that can help me with Artsonia, taking pictures, uploading, etc.  It would have to be done in the art room during the school day or morning so that I am here.  I would like it to be fairly consistent if possible.  I also can use help in organizing my room/closet.


All students will be making portfolios to contain the artwork they make throughout the year.  These are kept in the art room should you want to look at your child's.  If your child's artwork is posted on Artsonia, you will see what they are doing along with the lesson that goes to it.

The year will focus on the elements of art with every grade level continuing from previous knowledge.
We will be looking at the art history time line which will include information about artists and about cultures.
We will also continue to experiment with art media and become very comfortable in working with art in various ways.

We will have an inquiry based classroom where I hope to have the students wonder, think, imagine, and ask.  There will also be collaborating on some projects as well as integrating academic subjects with art.


It will be a great year!!

SEE WHAT WE ARE LEARNING IN ART!!
Artists Grades k-5
Art students are creating many wonderful artworks. They are using their imagination, skills, and confidence that show their individual growth.
The basic concepts in art are the elements of art.
 
The Elements of Art are: 
              LINE   COLOR   TEXTURE   VALUE                            SHAPE   FORM   SPACE                            
These are taught at various grade levels.
Although a lot of these elements are included in many art lessons, not all are.  This is what they will discover in doing their personal art.  
Fifth grade students will have learned all of these elements so they are prepared for sixth grade art.
