Art

June 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

What a wonderful, creative year it has been in the Art Studio and in the world of remote learning. Our artists had an opportunity to work with a variety of materials and mixed media, used clay to create three-dimensional sculptures, and engaged in conversations about master artists and art history. I hope your children continue to create and use their imaginations this summer! Remember how important it is for us, at any age, to create, sing, dance and be creative however we can.

Have a wonderful and safe summer,

Ms. Savello

Units of Study:

Pre-k – 2nd grade: Students are engaging in the creative arts using found objects and are evaluating what we can use in our homes to make art. Students have participated in sculpture, origami, painting, drawing, digital art and more. We will continue to explore different methods of art making to wrap the school year.

3rd – 5th grade: Students have been using Autodraw, a website that can be used to make digital art. Students will continue to explore this platform, as well as engage in the creative arts using found objects and evaluate what we can use in our homes to make art work; because art can be created with almost anything!

I am so proud of all of the hard work that our students have been doing and will be showcasing the work they have created during remote learning. I have posted an assignment for the students to pick their favorite artwork to submit. Every student will be highlighted in a Google Slide Art Show, which will be shared on Class Dojo and on their Google Classrooms. Please make sure you submit your pictures!!
