Elementary Art at Wilson School
As we begin the school year there is a lot to be excited about! We are fortunate to continue our art program, thanks to the continued support from the parents and caregivers who make this possible!
One of our primary goals in the art program at Richard B. Wilson K-8 School, is to help students discover the many ways art impacts our lives on a daily basis and to help the students realize their own unique artistic abilities. As we move towards achieving our goals, students will experience lessons that incorporate art production, art history, and aesthetics. Our lessons will enhance problem solving skills; allowing students to explore and experiment as they learn. Students will be involved in projects that are designed to teach the basic elements and principles of design as well as provide opportunities to learn about artists from a variety of different cultures. We will explore a wide range of techniques and materials including: paint, pastels, fibers, printmaking, ceramics, drawing, and sculpture.
I would like to extend an open invitation to anyone interested in visiting the art room to see what the students are working on. The students would love to show you their projects! If you would like to help out in the art room, parent volunteers are always welcome! If you would like to volunteer, or have any questions please call me at 520-696-5836 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Watch the school calendar for our upcoming art shows, including the district spring art show and the Wilson Fine Arts Festival in April. We will also have other displays throughout the year.
I am looking forward to an exciting and productive year!
