Welcome back!  I have many new ideas for our art classes this year.  I hope to see continued creative progress in each of my students as we explore the various methods that can be used to create art.
For grades 1-5, please be sure you children have an art box or bag containing the following supplies:
      pencils, crayons, washable markers, scissors, pencil sharpener, eraser, liquid glue, and glue sticks
GRADES 3-5  This year, students in these grades will also need a 9 x 12 spiral bound Sketch Book for art class in addition to the above supplies.  We will be studying famous artists, taking notes, and sketching some of their works.  We will use the sketch book as a notebook and practice book.

Optional supplies may include colored pencils, but experience shows that time is wasted sharpening these as they break easily.  They should not be used in place of crayons.
I appreciate all that you do and am always willing to work with you for the encouragement of our children.  As I always tell them, they are the artists.  I give them the basics and allow them the freedom to create their own version of any given art lesson.  I look forward to another great year!
