Welcome to Art!

Greetings artists and families! Welcome to my website for Grades K - 4 at the Chaffee and Clara Barton Elementary Schools. Click on each grade level to see what we're working on: media, themes, techniques, and famous artists. As our year progresses, I will continue to post examples of art work from students as well as links to interesting art websites, articles and announcements of local art related events! I hope you will check in often to see what's new!
