Happy New Year!

I have created a monthly newsletter to update parents and families on what is happening in the art room. The newsletter will include current assignments as well as feature student artists and their work. Please let me know if there is anything you would like to see in our monthly newsletter.

Still Life: Object Study

As part of our drawing unit, students are working on a observation drawing of an object where they will draw it several times using a variety of drawing materials and techniques. The students will explore pencil, colored pencils, pen and ink, pastels, oil pastels, and watercolor. They will also explore a variety of drawing techniques for adding value to the object including shading, blending, stippling, hatching, etc.

8th Grade Visitation

Wednesday, Jan. 27th, 8am

South Glens Falls Senior High School

8th Graders will be visiting the high school and learning about the variety of electives offered next year. As part of the visitation, students will visit the art room to learn about studio art, which is an elective and a prerequisite for all other art classes. Since this class is an accelerated studio art class, students will be able to take drawing next year at the high school.

Student artwork is showcased on Artsonia, the world's largest online student art museum. Parent permission is required before artwork can be viewed. Permission slips were sent home with students are the beginning of the year and parents can use the permission slips to sign up at home or return it to Mrs. Adie. Or you can give your permission via email to Mrs. Adie at
