We have two optional but fun creative projects going on at Dolvin for all students who wish to participate. The first one is the Yearbook Cover Contest and the theme for this year is Better Together. Remember your tips for making quality work - fill the space, use interesting and unique details, use bold lines and bright color. Here is everything you need to know:
The other is Artsonia's "Design a Mask" project, which allows students to create their own mask designs to wear or share as gifts. Artsonia has been our digital portfolio platform for years, so if you are new to Dolvin and have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. You can find out all you need to know about Artsonia at the tab above, or in your Art Team > General Files.

Thank you all for your patience as we figure out the safest, best ways to make this work for everyone. I am so proud of all of you and I am happy we can still make art together.

These are pre-pandemic shots of my students enjoying Vooks in my classroom. There are always a dynamic selection of award winning and classic books to choose from. I hope you will give it a try!

Hi friends! I am happy to report that each day is smoother than the one before and we are all learning and growing in this new school environment. We now have two weeks of experience and we are beginning to feel a comforting sense of regularity and routine. We have read inspiring books together and made lots of drawings, and I am really proud of the students with their respectful, problem-solving attitudes.

Although I will continue to share our art on this blog, I will not be posting our actual lessons here like I did in the spring - all students will access the art classes through Microsoft Teams. Thanks and I hope everyone's back-to-school season is smooth sailing!

I got to visit some of the Teams meetings and some of us even drew together!
I loved seeing all the amazing videos created by Megan Endicott, our music teacher, and Brad Agnew, our parent yearbook creator - thanks for the many hours you put into creating these memories for us! I loved seeing the thank-yous from the kids.
I cleaned my room and distributed all the portfolios to the homeroom teachers - all 26.
