Students Create for the Fine Arts Fest!

Students continue to develop their skills!













Welcome to Art Class

Dear Parent(s),

It is with great enthusiasm that we begin our class in Art. I would like to welcome your child to an opportunity of learning and creating through memorable activities.

Your child will have the opportunity to develop their original ideas for 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional projects, develop craftsmanship and technical skills, and develop creative problem solving skills in their Art Class. They will continue to develop their knowledge of visual communication by applying the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design to their work. They will learn about a variety of fascinating artists, important time periods in the history of art and civilization, and embark on a journey of career connections in Art.

If you have seen any artwork that your child has created and would like to share, please encourage your child to bring it to Art Room 201. It is always exciting to see their creativity grow. Students can participate in Art Club, Art Exhibits, and Contests. This year, all students can participate in our Fine Arts Fest. I look forward to your partnership.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Demakis, M.A.
