I look forward to displaying student artwork. We will be creating works of Art with a variety of materials throughout the year. Students will draw, paint, manipulate clay, sculpt and other exciting things. Fall will include 2-D drawing and painting while Spring involves more 3-D Art. I strive to ensure that our students will be able to relate Art to Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading and Writing. I also believe that Art creates a theraputic opportunity and helps students understand how to respectfully critique their peers work, as well as their own. Students will also have an opportunity to participate in JVASE. "The mission of the TAEA Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) is to recognize exemplary student achievement in the Visual Arts by providing art students and programs a standard of excellence in which to achieve."
