Introduction to Art

For the first two weeks of school, scholars are becoming familiar with the art room layout, rules/expectations, consequences for inappropriate behavior, and classroom procedures.  2nd-5th grade is also making their art journals, which are used throughout the year to store handouts, scales/learning goals, and worksheets for each unit of study.  The art journals will go home at the end of the year.  K and 1st grade are also doing liquid glue practice.

Next week, all classes will begin their square one art project that supports our line units.
