This year each grade level will learn about a variety of artists throughout time and places while we focus on content related grade specific themes.
Please click on left
side of this page where you will find additional information and grade level activities.
In addition our Chester art program will begin to incorporate National Core Art Standards which focus on Creating, Presenting, Responding, and Connecting. These standards align with the Common Core Standards as well as college and career ready 21st century learning goals.
When does artwork come home?
keep most of our artwork in classroom portfolios until after the spring
art show. After the art show, all artwork will come home in student
made portfolios so students can share with families and friends the
amazing art they created this year!
art days, I ask students to do their best but not to look their best!
We love to explore with paint, clay, glue, and
while I always have spare smocks in the art room, a large old tee shirt
kept in your classroom locker is a great way to keep school clothes
What do students do in art if they 'finish' early?
students are encouraged to spend the time needed to finish their art
with creativity and success however individual learning styles mean
students finish at different times. Students may use 'The Zone' area. In The Zone, students have choices in building,
reading, drawing and weaving using various art concepts learned in
