Welcome to the Art Studio at Dawson Elementary!

Art Studio News  

Spring/Summer 2023

Thanks so much to all the families who came out on June 8th and made our second annual Spring Art Show, FEAST YOUR EYES a big success!  Check out the photo album here!   5th grade students also worked so hard on their production of Willy Wonka Jr. including my fabulous set design crew.  Check out some of the amazing set pieces they created!

I am pleased to share that Dawson artists uploaded over 2600 photographs of their artwork to Artsonia this year!  Thanks to all the fans who supported your artists by commenting on their work.  It really encourages them to add to their portfolio.

If you're looking for an engaging, interactive art site for kids on rainy days or long car rides, check out Google Arts and Culture's PLAY site.  The 3D Pottery game is my favorite.  Have a creative summer!
