Fairview Art Studio

Bittersweet News

Hello friends,

I wanted to quickly let you all know that I have accepted an art teacher position at Edward Little High School next year. I want to thank the community at Fairview for allowing me to teach a great bunch of kids. I will miss them dearly. Thank you to the parents, and the PTO for supporting the art program here at Fairview. Most of all, thanks to the students for trusting me on the artistic journeys we participated in. I have had a lot of fun learning along with the students.

We want your input!! At this time, only 350 parents have completed the survey about our schools. This survey is your chance to give us your thoughts on grading and communication. If you haven't completed this survey, please take a few minutes to do so. The survey can be completed in two ways:

• online at the following link: bit.ly/ASDParentSurvey18

• on paper - copies are available in the main office of any school or at the Superintendent's office.

If you would like assistance with the survey, please contact your child's teacher or building principal. Thank you.


FAME Night

What a great night for the arts and showcasing the talented youth at Fairview. Thank you to all of the people that contributed to this night's success.

I like to thank my family and friends for helping put up the show and the artists that presented. It took 45 minutes per class per project (3 pieces of art per kid) to mount art work, and took 1 hour to put up a whole classes work of art. Fairview has 25 classes (PreK wasn't included.)

Check out these videos about the art show.

What conditions, mindsets, and behaviors support creativity and innovative thinking? What thing prevents or encourages people to take creative risks? How does collaboration help the creative process? (taken from the NCAS)

We have been exploring these questions in the art room. We will hopefully answer these questions with our art show. Our art show is called FAME Night. FAME stands for: Fairview's Art and Music Extravaganza.
