I am so excited to be returning to Rogers Park and Airport Heights this year! We will be exploring a variety of topics related to art history, aesthetics and criticism, art careers, and studio processes according to the following curriculum themes:
K - Art and Me
1st - Art In My World
2nd - Creating From Within Myself
3rd - Art and the Environment
4th- Art From Many Cultures
5th - Art as Communication
6th - Art's Impact on the World
Students in grades 1st-6th earn effort-based grades in Art.
Grades are based off of three main components:

Craftsmanship & Work Ethic
Meets end of class goals · Best effort
· Thorough, thoughtful work
Class Participation & Behavior

Looking forward to a great year!
