Welcome to Art Class!
Welcome Parents and Friends to the Glennwood Elementary Art Room Page!
On this page, you will find updates of happenings in the Art classroom.
Coming to the Art classroom in Spring 2019
Art to Remember Fundraiser will begin early in the Spring semester. Students will create a work of art and bring home an order form to collect wonderful keepsakes with their artwork on them! More details to come.
First grade will be working with local teaching artist, Jeff Mather! While learning about plants and animals, we plan to build our own sculptural garden in the early months of 2019. Photos and more details to come, stay tuned!
Mrs. Martta Sareva, our student teacher from Georgia State will begin her full-time student teaching in the Glennwood Art classroom. She had a wonderful time working with our second graders last semester and is very excited to be working with all students in the Spring.
From realistic and abstract portraiture, to printing with markers and foil! Kindergarten and First grade have been hard at work learning about different art processes, building upon their skills, and overcoming creative obstacles!
Second Grade Lantern Parade
Third graders practicing their value with oil pastel pumpkins! Oil pastels are an excellent way to pracice blending skills, working from light to dark and understanding how light sources can create different types of shadows. They are beautiful!
Portfolios are underway!
Students are working hard in the art classroom to create their visual art portfolios. Students are learning how keeping a portfolio promotes responsibility in learning, keeping all of their projects safe and in one place, referencing to past learned experiences, and promote their future endeavors with their artwork.
I am so excited to start out my second year at Glennwood, my fifth year overall as an Art educator.
Connecting core learning techniques with other subjects and implementing the new EL Education model with Visual Art
Actively participating to develop creative solutions to obstacles encountered during projects
Challenge fine motor skills to implement excellent craftsmanship at appropriate age level
Students are able to apply their skills and knowledge to real world experiences and to see relevance to their learning
One does not have to be good at drawing to be considered creative, and that a person can be creative in many aspects of life!
Participate with members of the community in Artistic endeavors, promoting local artists, exhibitions, museums, etc.
Artist of the Week
Each week, one student is selected to become Artist of the Week. Artists are selected when they demonstrate excellent effort, display high quality craftsmanship, and strive to reach their artistic goals. I look for students who respect art classroom supplies and collaborate with their classmates. It is important for students to not fear making mistakes, and to problem solve in order to overcome those obstacles.
