Week one is in the books! We covered all the business of behavior expectations, procedures, and seating assignments, and even had a little time left over to get started on an art activity. Grades 3-5 practiced some origami and worked on problem solving, while K started their magic carpet line drawings and 1-2 drew a representation of their super power to go with our #dolvINcredible superhero theme.
Next week, we will introduce our paper portfolios, where we keep our work and take notes and vocab. Our digital portfolios in Artsonia will be coming in a few more weeks. We will also begin our paint bucket reward system - classes who show teamwork by entering and exiting the artroom appropriately and clean up their areas will get a splash in their paint bucket.Our art quote of the month is by the French master Henri Matisse: “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” What does this quote mean to you? Write it on a post-it and add to our bulletin board!
Reminder- applications for Comic Creators and Needle & Thread Clubs are due this coming Friday, August 17. It’s going to be a great week!
