Two weeks left to go in February and we are kicking off our "kitty and puppy" theme in the art room with some drawing lessons for the first grades. For the kindergarten students our drawing lesson will be of a peacock. All students will add color with "construction paper crayons" or colored pencils this week and then we will complete the backgrounds with watercolor next week. These are some of my favorite lessons - I can't wait to see what my young artists create!
I wanted to let you know that I've just updated and added new photos to the classroom blog: www.strokesofart.blogspot.com) I hope you'll click this link to see what we've been doing in Art class.
I love to hear that the students visit the blog just as much as the parents, so I promised the students I would include a link to the websites we've been using in class during our lesson on Animation:
Listed below, you can still find a PDF that has photographic samples of how I grade for our new Standards Based Reports Cards. Many parents have wondered about this and I hoped these samples would be helpful.
Please know, that you can contact me with any questions, by phone and E-mail. I can't take phone calls during the school day, as I'm always with students, but E-mails will always work and I will write back as soon as possible.
