PARENTS-ALL ART WORK WILL BE SENT HOME NOW THAT THE ART SHOW IS OVER. I AM VERY PROUD OF THE OUTSTANDING ART WORK CREATED BY THE STUDENTS AT ST. JOSEPH ACADEMY. HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY SUMMER!
WELCOME to a very exciting school year in the new and improved art room. I am honored to be teaching your children in the visual arts. We will be working on a variety of projects this year- experimenting with different art mediums and techniques, discovering artists and art movements, exploring art from around the world, and making art interdisciplinary connections to social studies, science, math and technology. It is my goal to help your children develop their artistic abilities and gain confidence in their creative expression. In order to enhance their art experience the following rules are expected to be followed:
-be respectful and kind -listen and follow directions
-take care of the art materials -wear a smock
–always try and do your best -raise your hand
-be imaginative, creative and unique –have fun

ALL STUDENTS MUST WEAR A SMOCK TO ART CLASS
-All students are required to wear a smock to art class. Smocks keep expensive uniforms clean. Smocks are oversized shirts, large T-shirts or aprons covering the student from chest to knees. Failure to wear a smock will result in the student being unprepared for class and will affect their participation grade.
