Here is a slide show showing a sample of what each grade is currently working on in the art room. All classes started with designing their own sketchbook cover. Sketchbooks are used to practice drawing and generate ideas. Thank you for the many donations of tissue boxes and art supplies. Anyone interested in helping in the art room can email me at email@example.com. I mostly need extra helpers for kindergarten and first grade, but If you'd like to help, you are always welcome!
Students will work with a variety of materials in art this year. The curriculum includes the role of artists in society, recognizing art as a form of communication, and using the elements of art like line, shape, color, texture and space. Most artwork is saved during the year for displays and shows and will be sent home in June. We currently have two art teachers at Thurston, Mrs. Wyse and Mrs. Becker.
We are always in need of the following supplies:
ticonderoga pencils (easiest to sharpen)
tissues (for cold and allergy season)
