Let's Get Creative!
Dear Hershey/Dayton Families,
My name is Ms. Barnes and I'm so excited to be teaching your child in the art room this year. I have been in education for 18 years and the last 11 was teaching art. I will be at Hershey Mon, Thursday, and Friday and Dayton on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please have your child to bring an old shirt to put over their clothes during art class so they don't get their good clothes soiled. They will be keeping their shirts in the general ed. classroom for safe keeping until art time. We will be working with various kinds of media throughout the school year such as colored pencils, markers, paint, charcoal, and clay.
Students will be assessed on how well they followed directions and how well they apply the elements and principles of art. Each student is mainly graded on effort! If they put in the effort, they will be successful and have an amazing portfolio collection by the end of the school year.
If you would like to volunteer in the art room, I would be glad to have you, especially in the afternoon! Make sure you have the necessary background form completed.
If I can any assistance or you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Email is the best way but you can always call the school and leave a message.
