We have been fortunate to have a great artist/student teacher with us from BGSU. Miss Scharf has typed up a letter for you all to introduce herself. So, with no further ado, here is Miss Scharf:
Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pleasure that I will be working with your children for the next three weeks. My name is Kelsey Scharf, and I am in my final semester at Bowling Green State University. I have been put under the phenomenal guidance of Mr. Vasko, and I cannot wait to see what how your children react to the lessons that I have prepared for them. I look forward to working with each student to foster and develop their creativity and imaginations!
For early elementary, I have prepared a lesson on creating silhouettes using construction paper. The goal is to work on their cutting skills and focus on how they can define a certain place or landscape with limited amounts of information.
For the third and fourth graders, I have prepared a lesson on the artist, James Rizzi. He is a great example for the kids and they will have lots of fun with this project! It will involve a group effort in which each student will create two buildings. They will then be put into groups of three to paint a background in which their buildings will be pasted on in order to create small cityscapes.
For the fifth and sixth grades, they will focus on one point perspective drawings. This is a very important and foundational skill for them to learn.
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
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 thru Mr. Vasko 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.
