Great Day to be an Artist!

Today I saw 1st grade and Kindergarten for the first time!  They are precious.  We learned about rules and procedures of the classroom today.  They were a little disappointed that we didn't get to use any of the cool art supplies, but don't worry we will be doing that later this week.  First grade and Kindergartners come to Art class twice a week for 25 minutes at a time.  We split our specials time with Music and PE.  We get a lot accomplished in that amount of time and the short time period ensures constant engagement in our classroom.

First Day of School!

So far, it has been a great start to the year!  Kindergarten through second grade are creating artwork inspired by the book, The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds.  Third through fifth graders will have a sketchbook to use during art class this year.  This week they will create a cover for their skecthbooks.
