The easiest way to confirm your child has their

The grades are labeled HOME ART and QUARANTINE ART.

Parents and students-
Visit my LINKS for a list of 4O art museums around the world.
Most of these museums have virtual tours of their collections and sections dedicated exclusively to children. 
Perfect for a (yet another) rainy day.
It’s Specials Friday, y’all!
 
Parents and students:
 
QAS requires completion of 2 art activities
 
Students may choose art activities from my suggestions on the blog or create their own project
 
I updated grades.  Please make sure 2 assignments have been submitted.  If there is a discrepancy, please send me a message.
 
Overlapping Circles Watercolor Art
 
This project is easy and fun
 
You can use watercolor paint on canvas or watercolor paper
 
Or crayons/markers on paper
 
Take a round object (like a roll of making tape) and draw overlapping circles with a black sharpie
 
Paint or color each piece taking care not to place the same color next to each other
 
You can make it extra challenging by picking a warm or cool color pallette

Art Faces
This is adorable!
Three printable semi-finished faces:
Cut out eyes, nose, mouth, lips, etc from a magazine and glue on.
Make it silly or realistic!
You could color the finished product as an option.
Enjoy!
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!
