K-5th grade students will all take Visual Art once per week.
6th-8th grade will take Visual Art only if they choose it as an elective daily for one semester. Electives will be chosen the first week of school.
UPDATE: As of 12/21/2016 Needs:
Paper Towel Rolls
Paper bowls, cups, plates, straws
Broken Jewelry, ribbon, buttons, novelties, knick-knacks, anything that can be used for recycled and assemblage art projects.
On-going donations to Visual Art are always appreciated:
Recycled materials: paper towel rolls, containers, ect.
Misc. art supplies/craft supplies
Donation of gift cards from AC Moore, Michaels, Walmart instead of physical art supplies in $10, $15 or $20 increments. This will allow me to purchase what is truly needed, match my lesson plans, replace items as needed or purchase items for special projects, and prevent unneeded costs to students

Help build our visual art library! As a believer in integration, I work to incorporate reading into my daily lesson plans and providing space for open studio, tinkering, making and creative exploration. A strong subject library that also offers fiction with rich and interesting illustrations is central to making these ideas successful in reality. I often use book as starting points for engagement and illustrations from Caldecott winning books as discussion points. Additionally, resources that help me to become a better teacher are also in this list.
