Blog exhibition Date 2022
You have come a long way since the beginning of the school year. You started with great momentum and demonstrated heaps of creativity when you planned, designed, and turned your imaginings to life. All artworks in your grade level colors were finished on campus this year. The artworks in the final HUGE gallery post for the year were part of your online learning. You had 10 weeks of creating at home, with limited supplies and increased independence. It is clear to see that you contributed and grew as artists, maybe not in the usual ways we would have done while on campus, but certainly in the ways you solved problems. During quarantine, one of you made a rock to paint out of newspaper. Some of you used coffee to paint, and others created paintbrushes out of a variety of materials. You showed your resolve to stay connected and your love for The Arts!
Here is wishing you a restful and healthful break. For those who are leaving, I wish you well and hope to see you some where, some time, and for those who are returning, I cannot wait to see you again!
With a career spanning 25 years, I have worked alongside children from infancy to 9th grade in a generalist classroom setting. To my delight and surprise, an opportunity arose for me to become an art teacher in 2015. My first year was a learning experience and I expect that will be the case with all the years to follow.
