*The art room is collecting egg cartons, empty pringles cans, old paint brushes and empty paint cans. I will place a box outside my door for students to put donations. Thank you for recycling and collecting stuff for the art room. We will make good use of it!
My name is Mrs. Markey and I will be your child’s art teacher this year. I look forward to an exciting year of creative ideas and the joy of seeing new discoveries made by the children every day. My goals in art class are for all students to experience making art, learning problem-solving skills, and trying new and different ways of creating. My philosophy in art class is that truly great artwork is done when students try to do their best. I concentrate on effort, learning skills, and the joy of creating, rather than art ability in the elementary grades. Our art curriculum teaches students art history, famous artists, the elements of art , creativity and skills needed for problem solving. In the art room the children have hands-on lessons making drawings, paintings, sculptures, weaving, sewing puppets and many more with a wide variety of materials.
