Welcome to the first grade art page. During the second nine weeks, we will be creating paper mache sculptures as well as exploring oil pastels and learning about self portraits.. Your child's art will be sent home twice a year: once in February and once at the end of the school year. If you would like to check out what your child has been creating before they bring it home, I will be posting their artwork regularly to an online gallery called Artsonia. (This requires your permission, so keep an eye out for the form that will be coming home soon.) Creativity can get messy, so please remind your child not to wear their favorite outfit on art days.
