Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year

Green Meadow Students have spent their first few art classes creating "Get to Know You" sculptures using various forms of 3D lines such as zig zag, arch, swirl, etc.  Third Grade students have been creating "Be the Nice Kid" images to hang in the front of the school and accompany the new quote located by the front doors.  

This year we will explore the Elements and Principals of Designs as the focus of our curriculum.  Lessons will focus on Line, color, shape, contrast, movement, rhythm, value, balance, texture, Space, Form, proportion, unity and variety.  

The art room could use the following donations:
  • Paper towels (for cleaning up spills)
  • Clorox wipes
  • Tissues
  • Hand sanitizer 
  • Sponges 
The Art show will be held during Spring Open House April 10, 2019.  I hope to open doors by 6pm and the show will end promptly at 8pm in order to have time to break down the show.  The format will be the same as last year, framed art will be displayed and frames will be sold for $25 each.  The art room receives $6.00 for each frame.  The proceeds from the show will but used for either a new ceramics Kiln or additional art supplies.  

The art room uses Artsonia online art museum to keep a digital portfolio of your student's work.  If you do not yet have an Artsonia account for your child please contact me at so that I can get your account set up.  It's a fun way to store your student's work from Kindergarten all the way to High school.  

I could use a few volunteers to help with photographing work on Artsonia, organizing donations, hanging art work or changing over bulletin boards.  If you're interested in helping in the art room please email me.  

Looking forward to a wonderful year.
