May Art Studio Updates

A Note from Ms. Chroneos

Dear families and caregivers,

I can count the number of art classes left for each group on one hand! We are wrapping up the year in the art studio as busy as ever, and we are still enjoying creating and learning together. Grade 3 has some pretty spectacular spring flowers in the works, grade 4 is finishing up a "doodle" project and will complete "building challenges" in the upcoming weeks, and K-2 have been studying the different lines and shapes in ocean environments.

Grade 5 is working on something particularly special, as they recently wrote poems in the "I Am From" format in their classrooms that they will transform into drawings in art class. I am so proud of what they have been working on so far!

As always, I am ever so grateful to work with your children!

Samples of Poetry from Grade 5 Students


Art can get messy! It might be best to make sure your student(s) do not wear their very best clothing on art days. I will be mindful of picture days or special event days in planning curriculum. See below for your student's art day!
