Welcome back to our Art Class!                         
My name is Mrs. Atkinson. Our classes meet every day for 55 minutes.
The art experiences, knowledge and skills will be integrated with
academic subjects.     

Academic Art grades are based on: 

Work Effort ……..follows directions, involvement, engagement
Craftsmanship……..neatness, skill applications, care of tools and materials Participation….. following procedures, rules, activities and collaboration
Creativity………using the imagination and critical thinking when creating

I will encourage collaborative and integrated learning through the arts. 
The arts enhance cognitive skills and promote learning skills. If you have any “fun” items the students would enjoy creating into masterpieces we would appreciate your donations such as:

Colored pencils, markers, magazines, oil pastels, chalk pastels, glue,
paints, or anything art related!

I’m am extremely excited to see all your familiar faces and to welcome
the upcoming 6th grade class! We have so many awesome art projects to
create and I can already tell this is going to be an amazing year!
Welcome back!

Mrs. Atkinson
