Classroom News

Students are off to a good start in art! We started the year with a unit on exploring techniques and the language art. Students learned about the seven elements used in art and practiced storytelling in art as demonstrated by artist, Red Grooms. E-learning homework includes a line practice lesson and a reading of A Place for Art to Start.

Week two examines the creative process and students are able to practice it by planning, creating, and reflecting on artworks. Artist, Joo Young Choi inspires us to create an imaginary friend of our own (in our new sketchbooks) who is here to help solve a problem. Students create a collage using the creative process for e-learning homework.

Welcome and Welcome Back!

 20-21 is guaranteed to be a year of learning! Our hybrid model will be a new process for all and I look forward to navigating it with you!

Through art, students will be participating in fun and meaningful artistic experiences that support GRE’s values as reflected in this statement: “We foster growth by challenging critical thinkers to take risks, honor differences, and care for others.”

Looking ahead to an ART-rageous year together! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions or comments.
