Elementary Art with Mrs. Hitt and Mrs. Teran at Wilson School

 

As we begin the 2018-19 school year there is much to be grateful for and excited about!  We are so fortunate to be able to continue our art classes thanks to all of the caring parents who have made this possible by continuing to support our programs and public education.   We are super excited to begin the year with Mrs. Hitt who will be teaching grades K-2, and Mrs. Teran who will be teaching grades 3-5.

 

The main goal of the art program at Richard B. Wilson K-8 school is for students to discover the many ways art touches our lives every day and for them to realize their own unique artistic abilities.  As we move towards achieving this goal, students will experience lessons that incorporate art production, art history and aesthetics.  Our lessons will also help foster problem solving skills and allow 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 different cultures and contexts.   We will explore a variety of techniques and materials including: paint, pastels, printmaking, ceramics, drawing, sculpture etc.

 

We would like to extend an open invitation to anyone interested in visiting the art room.  The students would love to show you what they are working on.  Parent volunteers are always welcome!  If you have any questions or concerns please call us at 696-5836 or email us at ahitt@amphi.com or bteran@amphi.com.

 

 

Keep an eye open for our spring art show and the Fine Arts Festival in April.  We will also have other displays throughout the year.  We could also use a few volunteers to help with the Fine Arts Festival, if this is something you would be interested in please let me know via e-mail at bteran@amphi.com or ahitt@amphi.com.

 

Thank you in advance for the privilege of working with your students.   We are looking forward to an exciting and productive year.

 

Sincerely,

 

Angela Hitt and Beverly Teran
