Square 1 Art Fund Raiser

4 10 2010

September 13-October 1

A big surprise will be coming home in your child’s folder very soon.  Our elementary students have worked very hard over the past three weeks on a special assignment. Each child on the elementary hall (including our 5th graders) created a beautiful bordered self-portrait for an exciting new fund-raiser at our school.  Just for participating, your child will earn a free sheet of 20 stickers with his or her artwork on them.  You will also receive a personalized catalog with numerous items that you can order with your child’s artwork.  These items make wonderful christmas presents for relatives.  CLICK  HERE  for more information about Square 1 Art.


Week 1 -Self Portraits PK3-4th

God is so good!  Not only is He creative, but He made us ALL in his image. Wow!!! It is amazing to see how creative that God is by making millions of people that live on the Earth all different. Since God is creative, we can also be creative with our artwork.

 The first week of school, all students will be asked to create a self portrait drawing using pencils and crayons.  Students will be able to look in the table-top mirrors to at their reflection as they are working.  I have been so impressed at the amount of growth I have seen in the students that I have taught for the past three years.

These portraits have all been scanned and emailed to all elementary parents. I plan on comparing these drawings to those done at the end of the year to measure improvement.  I am looking forward to another creative year in art class!
