WELCOME TO THE ART ROOM!

The Art Education program at West Haverstraw Elementary builds a foundation for developing knowledge, skills and processes for visual literacy and creative expression. 

Art lessons are based on the Elements and Principles in Art, National Art Standards, and the Studio Habits of Mind for Artists. 

Students learn to communicate their ideas, opinions and feelings through drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, clay, mixed media, written word and discussions.

The WHES Art Room is always buzzing with excitement!

NOTE TO PARENTS

Parents:

Please do not have your child wear their party-best shoes and clothes on their scheduled Art day. Even though the WHES Art room supplies painting shirts (smocks) for students to wear, students may still accidentally drip paint.

Your child's artwork:  All art work will be stored in personal portfolios and will be distributed in early May. 

Please make the time to stop by the Art Room during Meet the Teacher Night and Parent Teacher Conference Days.

Thank you!
