This year, during “Art Appreciation” time each week, the students learn about lines, shapes, colors, techniques, perspectives, and other concepts. We also explore art styles from art masters and then create our own art using those styles. Studies have shown that involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills. Art learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and team work. Finally, drawing, painting, and creating arts can be a relaxing, non-pressure activity that refreshes the mind. Continuing with our art schedule, in January, we will be using watercolor. I am asking parents to please purchase a set of watercolor for your child. You can find inexpensive sets at Michael’s, Office Depot, or Wal-Mart. In the case you cannot purchase the supplies, not to worry, I will have watercolors for your child to use.
If you would like to send additional items for those students who may not be able to acquire any, your donation will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
