Photo Scavenger Hunt

This Photo Scavenger Hunt is a great option for older children with phones and freedom to explore their neighborhood.
Some of the items are a bit more abstract and may require some discussion prior to the hunt.
Students can send me their images in any creative way: they can group them into a collage, slide presentation, or a movie.
 Feel free to work with a partner!

Welcome to Art!
This year in art, your child will be doing all sorts of amazing things!  We'll learn about the Elements and Principals of Art while using a variety of mediums.  Students will also learn about artists from around the world; as well art history periods, movements and styles.  Students will get messy and have fun while creating individual projects based on these areas.  Look for these to come home throughout the school year.
I believe that for students to be successful at school, we need to work as a team.  Please feel free   to contact me at any time with concerns or questions about your child's art education.  My hope is that your child will have the absolute best art class experience possible, gain new skills and have fun!
