If you are still in the "Summertime, relax time" mode....I'll keep my summer message posted below....
Some of you might be getting excited, just a little, about The First Day of School 2016!!! Me too! (Just a little - teehee!) So, I have good news to share. Some of you requested that I continue to keep our classroom blog updated and posted w/ pictures of what we are doing in Art class. I did take a break from posting last year, but I am feeling rested and recharged. You can find a brand new post by clicking HERE or here www.strokesofart.blogspot.com . There you'll find a few samples of what we plan to work on this year in Art class.
Don't forget, when you come to your child's Orientation on August 2nd, from 11-1 or 4-6, you can stop by the Art Room at the Primary Center, too! We'll have a few makes-n-takes, such as necklaces and bookmarks for the kids (and you too)!
And finally, more good news to share.....I'm so grateful to have an additional Art Teacher on staff that we will share with the middle school Art Department. Her name is Shay Sanchez and you'll be able to learn more about her and her expectations on her Teacher Connection page found on the Middle School site. Check back soon and I'll keep you posted on more information about that. :o)
Love, Mrs. Broaderick!
Best wishes for a happy and safe summer!
I totally love to receive letters, art work or notes from my students. If they want to write to me I will write them back!

If you don't get to attend an art camp at the Appleton, just visiting the museum is also something you can do.
--paint a ceramic piece of your choice at Picasso's Palette in Ocala. They too offer summer camp art activities, but you can also just stop by to paint something. Here is their website: http://www.picassospalette.com/ Let them know, Mrs. Broaderick sent you!
--visit The Crayola Experience in The Florida Mall in Orlando, FL. http://www.crayolaexperience.com/orlando Be sure to visit the website first if you decide to go. They usually offer coupons off of admission.
