Neshobe School Art - Mr. Brodowski

  • 2017-18
    Hello Everybody!
     We ended last year with an amazing collaborative project between the visual arts teachers of the RNESU school district and the Compass Arts Center in Brandon, VT. The collaboration was called th!NK. The big news this year is that we will be continuing the collaboration with Castleton University. Our drawing will be displayed there this winter and Castleton students will be adding their own drawing to it. The drawing will also be displayed at an art gallery in Burlington next summer. I will be sending notices home to keep parents updated but in the meantime (in case you missed it) check out the links below. Special thanks to our completely amazing Neshobe PTO for their support! Get in touch at jbrodowski@rnesu.org if you have any questions or would like to help. THANK YOU!

For students in Kindergarten through Grade Three the art program at Neshobe is based on various units that connect art to themes from student’s classrooms, the local community, and the larger “art world”.  Within each unit, students focus on working with a variety of art media and techniques (watercolor, printmaking, clay, etc.) as well as the elements and principles of design (line, shape, color, form, etc.). At the beginning of Grade Four and continuing through Grade Six the program shifts to a “choice-based” art education model. In this environment students become responsible for choosing which media, techniques, and ideas they would like to work with. In a choice-based art class the teaching of art media and techniques, as well as the elements and principles of design, is still present but the emphasis on learning shifts to idea generation, creative problem-solving, independent thinking, and creative risk-taking. Students are also offered the opportunity and encouraged to participate in art shows, community events, school fundraisers, and community service projects.
