Students create projects that place an emphasis on Art History, Art Criticism, Art Aesthetics and Art Production. Students learn about elements and principles of design to create interesting works of art.
Greetings From The Art Room!
Dear Parents and Families,
My name is Ms. Taraborrelli and I am the art teacher here at College Square. This year our theme in the art room is called GO WEST ! Many of our projects will focus on Native American arts and crafts as well as desert themed ideas.
Our talented students will make lots of great projects using yarn, watercolor and tempera paint, sculpture with found objects, clay, markers, crayons and more! We will look at many famous and not so famous works of art as we learn about the elements and principles of design. All of our art projects are based on the Pennsylvania Standards for Arts and Humanities, as well as National Standards for the Arts. First and second grade students receive an assessment that is based on effort, behavior, and application of learned skills and techniques.
As we make many messes in the art room, I am asking that you please send in an art shirt with your child. This can be an oversized T shirt or apron that I will keep in a locker next to the art room. Please write their name on the back with a sharpie.
Square One Art ordering deadline is Tuesday October 28th for paper orders. Online orders can be made until October 31.
