Students come to art class once a week for a 45 minute period. In art, students explore the artistic process, plan, create, reflect, revise, and present. We discuss ways to begin a project, explore materials and techniques, learn how to reflect on our own work and critique the work of others. I am looking forward to an exciting and creative school year with our young artists!
