Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
My name is Paige Duft and this is my 16th year as the Art Specialist at IDES.
You may be wondering how in the world we are going to create and learn in a virtual classroom this year and I'm here to tell you that I have been wondering the exact same thing! I am in full in GROWTH MINDSET mode as I start navigating the ins and outs of it all! We're all in this together, so go easy on yourself and remember that mistakes are proof that you are trying and that the power of YET is everything!
Be well. Be kind. Wear your mask. Wash your hands.
I miss you so and can't wait to see you soon!
The best way to deal with an anxious heart is to turn it into Art
LETS ALL BE WELL
The Art Movement uniting Kids and Families around the World
There is a movement sweeping across the globe right now where families are creating rainbows along with the words "Let's All Be Well"and displaying them in windows, on their houses and in their yards as a message of hope. People are sharing images they have created hoping to spread some love and light during these uncertain times.
While we may be physically apart for awhile, we are all in this together!
Fill your windows with rainbows. Fill your yard and your porch and driveway with rainbows. Fill the WORLD with rainbows! You can use any kind of materials-paint, markers, crayons, paper, chalk or whatever you have! Spread some joy to those walking or driving by and whatever you do, don't forget to share your rainbows with me! You can email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
Love, Ms. Paige
*That's my rainbow and a video of one of our favorite COLOR PLAYLIST SONGS!
Since everyone is talking about TOILET PAPER these days and since it's EARTH DAY,
There's no better time to REDUCE, REUSE & RECYCLE!
Grab an empty TP roll (or 2 or 3!) and get creative!
BE SURE TO SHARE YOUR CREATIONS WITH ME!
I am SO EXCITED to share a VERY special offer with you!
