Welcome to Art Class…During the School Day and After School!

I’m so glad I have been at school the past two days to welcome my new students to their first day of art class. I am feeling so much art enthusiasm from these kids! I have modified my usual first day activities to conserve my voice and breath due to my present asthma issue. All the kids have been empathetic and many can relate firsthand and share that with me. This morning as I walked through the halls on the way to the art room, I was asked 4 separate times by students I had just met yesterday, “Are you feeling better today?” And how sweet were the concerned looks on their faces? It got my day off to a great start!

Speaking of great starts, the next Enrichment session registrations are due on Tuesday. I am offering 3 activities this session. The first, on Tuesday, is Clay + Animals = Clanimals:

Clay + Animals = Clanimals – Whether realistic or fantastic, clay animals are fun to make and paint. Join us as we craft creatures of all kinds: human, barnyard, domestic, mythical, or imaginary. You will be amazed as you transform lumps of clay into carefully crafted creatures!

On Wednesdays fun and fabulous Art Club will be held:

Art Club 5 & 6 – Calling all art lovers! This club is open to all students who love art. Most activities will evolve based on the interests of club members. Possibilities include clay, murals, origami, Manga, mosaics, painting, marbling, and large art projects that will be enjoyed by the whole school. Art club will be offered every session of enrichment, but the activities are different each time. New members and returning members are welcome!

And on Thursdays I am offering iPads: Beyond Angry Birds (iPads are supplied for this class):

iPads: Beyond Angry Birds – The iPad is fast becoming a most innovative and dynamic tool in education and entertainment for ages 1 – 99. In this class we will get to know the iPad through photography, videos, slideshows and other fun activities. Whether new to the iPad or an experienced user, you will enjoy this class as we go beyond Angry Birds and learn that no matter what one wants to do or learn, there’s an app for that! iPads will be supplied for this class.
