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 teamwork. 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.
Please purchase an inexpensive set of water-colors for your child at stores like Walmart, Michael’s, Office Depot, or online at Amazon.
Our Class Carnival will be on December 20. Our Carnival Store needs chips, cookies, candies, sodas, juice, cupcakes, popcorn, etc…so the students can “purchase” with their tickets. Any donation you can contribute to the Carnival Store will be greatly appreciated. More information to come. Thank you!
SECRET SANTA CONTINUES
Our Class' "Secret Santa" activity continues this week to promote the “Season of Giving” in December. On the last day (December 20), please allow your child to bring a fun gift $5 or less to give to your special person that he/she picked to give this season. :)
Thank you so much for your support.
