Welcome To Art Class!
Ms. Anderson's Art Classroom 2013-2014
Beginning Of The Year Art Teacher's Newsletter
Students will focus on the basic art skills in art: elements/ principles of design, drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking and sculpture. Art is taught progressively starting at the level they are in basic skills of drawing. Each skill is meant to build on the previous skill. Creativity, Craftsmanship, Composition, Comprehension. Effort and expression are encouraged in all works of art. Students will be encouraged to enjoy the process of making art through good studio habits of mind: engaging, persisting, envisioning, observing, reflecting, stretching and exploring. All of these will help the students to be successful learners throughout their lives. Please remember I do all that is possible for your child not to get messy. I use smocks, but highly engaged students will get messy so find out when your child has art class and dress them appropriately.
