ART has the ability to transform, illuminate, educate, inspire, and motivate
Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skill. Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork.
A sneak peek into Middle School Art
I often have parents wondering if we could use yarn, fabric, plastic containers, etc. in the art room...the answer is usually "YES!" I love to recycle whenever possible, and students get a big kick out of discovering new and inventive ways to create art out of unique, found objects. To help streamline the donation process, I have put together a list of the donation items that I know we will put to good use. If you come across something that you think may be worth donating but you're completely sure, please e-mail me to double check before bringing it to school.
