Welcome to art class!
Thank you for visiting the art page at DIS. In art class students will work on many projects including 2D, 3D, painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, and art history, just to name a few. As the DIS art teacher it is my goal to provide the DIS community with the best and most beneficial art education possible. This is my second year with the Donegal School District, and I have to say the children and families are a joy to work with!
Please note the following:
1) Art Shirts: Art shirts are provided for your child, so they do not need to bring in their own individual shirt. The art shirts I will be providing will be washed every two weeks, or more, depending on how much we are using art shirts. If your child would like to bring in their own shirt please have the shirt labeled and in a large baggie. The label should include, name, grade, and homeroom teacher. Finally, if you have any old shirts that you are looking to get rid of feel free to donate the shirts to the art shirt bin-just send in the shirt(s) you would like to donate with your child and have them deliver the shirt(s) to the art room(s).
2) Art Show: The art show is held every spring. In order to prepare for the art show I hold on to your child's artwork until I know what will and what will not be included in the art show, also so I can make sure every child has at least one piece of artwork in the show. One piece of artwork per child is usually the limit due to the amount of students who attend DIS. The art show date will be announced approximately a month in advance.
3) Volunteers in the Art Room: I am always open to having parent volunteers in the art room. If you would like to volunteer in the art room please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can help you complete and hand in the required paperwork for volunteers.
4) Grades in the Art Room: Every student is graded on an individual basis. Students are not compared to others, only on their own individual improvement and work ethic. Art making is a continuous learning experience and there is always room for growth.
I look forward to working with the students and families of DIS. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns at email@example.com.
