This year artists in the Heathcote art room will continue to
develop their understanding of art and design through the exploration of media
application, technique, form and function, history and aesthetics. We will be making connections between
ourselves, the work we do in the studio and how this work fits into larger
world context. Units of study will be
comprised of viewing artworks, analyzing and discussing curricular topics in
relationship to the Elements of art and Principles of design, hands-on
activities, self and peer reflection and technology will be integrated where
Finished works of art will be on display throughout the halls
for the school and community enjoyment. All artwork will be returned for students to
take home after the completion of our Poetry and Arts festival in the
spring. If you wish to see your child’s
progress and work prior to that please check in on our classroom Twitter page,
or back on the art gallery link on this webpage.
Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions, inspiration,
or suggestions. I realize that art can be a bit messy, please have your child
dress in art appropriate clothing, or have them bring in an old shirt for a
smock that they may leave in their classroom/locker.
I am looking forward to another amazing year!!!!
