In this class, we work in different areas such as Drawing, Painting, Ceramics and Sculpture.  

We also:

  • Talk about how art is created or made.

  • Learn about the history and cultural backgrounds behind works of art.

  • Discuss what makes art beautiful or not.  What is art? What are our feelings about the artwork?

  • Describe the objects, colors, lines, patterns and textures that we see in art.

As an art class, we work together to make this an exciting, innovative and safe environment to create art. I strongly encourage creativity, self-expression and imagination in my art room!


1.  Be ready and prepared to begin class.

2.  Follow directions. (Be an active listener.)

3.  Respect yourself, other students, teacher, tools, materials and the art room.

4.  Be safe.  (Includes using safe movements in the classroom and using tools and materials properly and as directed).

5.  Do your personal best and give it your all!  (Work your hardest and try not to compare yourself with others.)

If students engage in aggressive or disrespectful behavior, I follow the Mean Behavior Rubric in the handbook. There will be consequences for inappropriate actions which can include notes or calls home, indoor lunches or losing art privileges. Please see the attached Powerpoint below that will explain my classroom set-up and management plan, in addition to class descriptions.

I look forward to guiding all students towards self-expression, creativity and their own personal interpretations of the world around us. Parents, please don't hesitate to contact me if there are any suggestions, comments or concerns. I am truly thankful for the opportunity to work with such an excellent student body.
