Dear Parents and Guardians,
WE ARE WORKING WITH CLAY!
Please send an art shirt with your child if at all possible. We are working with ceramic clay starting January 15th. It is super messy. It does wash out and does not stain, but if your child gets it on them they will be dirty all day. Thanks for your help in this!
It is with great pleasure that I have been working with your children this year. I love to see what how your children react to the lessons that I have prepared for them. I continue to look forward to working with each student to foster and develop their creativity and imaginations!
The arts have always been very close to my heart and I hope to project that feeling on to your children. Therefore, my core belief on teaching in the arts advocates building not just an artist, but someone who can appreciate the arts for what it is and what it has become. After all, the arts promote self-discovery and experimentation. I like to provide my students with an environment in which they are able think about how they view the world and how they may describe it
We opened our year with a study of Ancient Egypt. Primarily, the initial focus was on their use of decoration, specifically the use of patterns, repetition, and color. We later became more acquainted with their customs, way of life, and belief systems. Your children have been drawing, painting, working in clay, and constructing their way thru the Nile Basin. It will be a fun year!
If you would like to get a hold of me, please feel free to stop by and meet with me before or after school. You can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Needless to say, I am greatly looking forward to working with your children and seeing how they grow!
A quick reminder: on Art day it is best for your student not to wear their very latest, greatest, best, newest, or favorite-est outfit. This is always true, but especially while we do ceramics, please keep this in mind.
