From the desk of Ms. Porter, Ellis Art Teacher

Featured Artist: Grant Wood

Third graders are analyzing a painting by American artist Grant Wood. They noticed that it is a rural landscape painting and that some objects are close-up and some are far away. They started a collage with supplies from a scarecrow building kit and will add lots of rural details to their artworks! Ask your favorite 3rd grader how to make something look close-up or far away in an artwork!


Ms. Fine graduated from Missouri Western State University last fall. This is her first year of teaching and she loves getting to know all of the students.

Mrs. Fine is originally from Lathrop, Missouri. Her family wasn't very happy about her taking a job in the rivalry town of Plattsburg, but we are glad she did!

In her free time, Ms. Fine likes to run and read. She travels any chance that she gets and went to Greece this past summer. She has more travel plans for next summer! Welcome to CCR3, Ms. Fine!
