Welcome to the Art Studio at Dawson Elementary!

Art Studio News

Spring/Summer 2022

Thanks so much to all the families who came out on May 16th and made our first annual Spring Art Show a big success! Students also explored the art show during art classes the week to be inspired by and reflect on the work of other Dawson artists. Special thanks to the Dawson PTA for funding our new portable art gallery walls! We are already looking forward to next year.

I am pleased to share that Dawson artists uploaded over 2600 photographs of their artwork to Artsonia this year! I've included 1000 of those images in a slideshow you can access at this link.

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 new PLAY site. The 3D Pottery game is my favorite!

Have a creative summer!
