• I am so excited to see you all back in the ART ROOM.    What will we be learning about first in visual art enhancement class ?   

    • We are going to start off with self-portraits this year.   Students will be shown examples of self portraits of famous artists and understand that a self portrait is a picture of yourself.
    • We will continue by discussing the location and shape of each feature of an "average" face and that each of our faces will vary slighty from basic guidelines.
    • We will pass out small mirrors for the older students and encourage students to look closely at the shapes of their facial features and the shape that their hair makes against their face as well as its outside shape.

I believe it is important for a student to learn about the arts as well as the more academic subjects in order to have a well rounded education.   The study of fine art teaches students to appreciate beauty and to be more compassionate toward other people different from themselves.  Learning about art can help students communicate their feelings and improve their self esteem.  "Logic will get you from A to B.  Imagination will take you everywhere"  Albert Einstein
