OK.  SO I’ve totally slacked off on posting.. Who has the time??!  But have you checked out my Instagram??? —————————>>>>>>>>>>

8th grade has had a ton of fun doing Culinary Arts (thanks to “The Earth Without Art is Just Eh.”)  See the pics on Instagram.

K-2 Art Club had an amazing time doing Berthe Morisot Flower Bouquets from Painted Paper Art (http://www.paintedpaperart.com/2019/01/morisot-flower-bouquets/)  Pics coming soon!

4-8 Art Club begins again next week!!

Digital Art has been really captivating for both 4th and 5th who have put together Still-lifes using a combination of the apps Pottery, ArtRage, Juxtaposer and Glaze.

My elementary elective kids are flying through the curriculum!!  We are doing Surrealism and it’s barely March!  Way to go!

I’ll try to write again soon…



It is nearly the end of the first-quarter and all of the classes have been busy! Elective classes and fourth through eighth grades  Will be taking an end of quarter exam during the last week of the grading period (October 8-12).  Fourth and fifth grades will be finishing their projects, too.  Please check portal if you have any concerns. Contact me with questions.


This week:

  • 4th grade will finish up their Keith Haring paintings
  • 5th grade is wrapping up their Oil Pastel self-portaits
  • 4E and 5E are starting the Greco-Roman time period
  • 6E and 7E began the Element of Shape.  They are working on OpArt and Abandoned Vehicle drawings, respectively
  • 8E continues their Toy Design unit.  Three drawings are due Friday


So many fun things this week!  5E visited the DFAC to make canopic jars, 8E has TWO guest speakers and 7E have completed 2 projects already!  Be sure to check Portal regularly for grades and assignments and to click on Students above to catch up on the happenings in your class!


Whew!  Already into the swing of things in Art!  Be sure to click Students and your class to see what’s happening this week.  There is HW due for some classes on Tuesday (8/28) and 5th Elective has a field trip on Tuesday, too!  Middle school students will get Portal log in information so they can check their grades and have access to assignments.  This is great if a student is absent and needs makeup work.
