I hear and I forget,
I see and I remember,
I do and I understand.
We learn in multiple ways. Research tells us that the number of visual learners in a typical classroom is usually well above fifty percent. In art class, we will be exploring the language of art (elements and principles) while integrating subject matter from the Massachusetts Frameworks.
We accomplish a lot in approximately 30 classes during the year. Our projects are completed over 4-5 classes and enrich on many levels. Reinforcing science, social studies, and math content using a "hands-on" approach have been shown to greatly improve comprehension. This integrative program may not be the art class parents remember.
2000-2021 Art Classes
In this year of changes, teaching art was one of many. I began teaching grades PreK-6 fully remote (but live). In April when the children mostly came back to school in person, I went back to PreK-3 and remote for one class per grade. It has been a challenging year with many schedule changes, swings back and forth with in-person and remote platforms and grade changes, but I hope you have continued to enjoy art and the many learning opportunities offered!
