Art Class at CES

Learning to draw and think creatively helps prepare students for the future!
The truth is that learning to paint, create a website, or design an energy-efficient home requires mastering skills which are often invisible to the naked eye, but are developed through a strong visual arts education.

We have begun a new initiative through PBIS (Positive Behavior Instructional Strategies).  All specialists will be tracking behaviors in order for classes to earn a reward of their choosing.  In art classes I will be looking to see if students meet behavioral expectations such as talking quietly, staying seated and on task, raising hands to speak and treating each other kindly.  All of these expectations fall under the simple idea of "respect".  Thank you, in advance, for your support of this goal.

Another successful Curriculum Fair!

The Week of June 4th

Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa

Grades 1 & 2:  Students will again practice fine motor skills as they bead necklaces and use Perler Beads to create colorful objects that can be hung.

Grades 3 & 4:  We'll be making windsocks this week.  Students will use color and pattern to create designs on their windsocks.  We'll attach crepe' paper to finish them off.

Grades 5 & 6. Students will learn about the significance of the carp in Japanese cultures.  They will be using a marker wash to decorate paper carps that will be used as windsocks.  This week we'll finish decorating and spray our designs to allow them to run and blend together.

Grades 7 & 8:  8th grade will finish off their wood sculptures this week and 7th grade will finish Aboriginal paintings and Frank Stella inspired abstract paintings. He's been one of our table artists all year!
