    Welcome Parents:

    Here is information regarding important aspects of our classroom and the Visual art program.

             In my program I incorporate various types of art in an historical as well as contemporary context. I focus on design and origins of fiber arts with a cultural emphasis. My curriculum includes interdisciplinary focus, alignment with the N.Y.S. visual arts standards and the Common Core. My goal is to establish a firm foundation in the fundamentals of Art education, while keeping on top of influential and positive new art forms, cultural changes and stylistic nuances.

      Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I’m looking forward to a very productive school year.

     Class Rules:

    Respect for Self I will always do my best; I will positively participate in all classroom activities

    Respect for Others I will stay on task without disturbing or distracting others. I will not use “put downs” or harass others, I will respect other people’s differences and opinions.

    Respect for School I will raise my hand to speak. I will enter and exit the room quietly. I will complete all assignments on time, and I will actively listen when the teacher is speaking. 
    Respect for the art room and the supplies and materials  I will follow directions and clean up and properly store materials.
