Here's what's happening...
If you received an Artsonia slip from me, please go online and give your son/daughter permission to use the site. It is a great tool for reflecting and keeping a digital portfolio of your child's artwork. Click on the video below to see a glimpse inside our Art Studio.

We are currently working on a 3D painting. We molded part of it out of clay and are about to start painting the background. They are looking terrific so far!

Students in grades 2-5 will be using Artsonia in class to submit artwork and write reflections on it. If you have not given permission through the link in the email, your child cannot participate. Please do so as soon as possible. *I sent slips home to all students that are missing parent permission.

Mrs. Jacqui Spetrino
I am excited to begin my first year teaching here at Brentmoor. I have been an educator in Mentor for thirteen years, where I serve as department coordinator for the district's Elementary Art Department. I also teach at Sterling Morton Elementary the second half of the week.
I pride myself in creating a classroom community where every child feels safe, welcomed and relaxed. My art studio is a place where we nurture each other's creative processes and children confidently learn to take risks while developing a sense of pride in their artwork. Your children will have the opportunity to work with many different mediums and styles of art. My curriculum includes all of the Ohio Visual Arts standards while focusing on the common core discovery style of learning and many 21st century skills.
