Teacher's Message

Art is back at OLMC!

You can find the art room in the Primary School wing in room 301.

Students will be working on projects this year that focus on the Elements of Art. There are seven elements: Color, Line, Form, Shape, Texture, Value, and Space. Each grade will focus on the elements in more and more detail depending on their grade level.

Some of the materials we will be working with are oil pastels, chalk pastels, tempera or acrylic paint, clay, wire, and more! As you can see art may get messy this year, so EVERY child must bring a smock labeled with their name to school. The smocks will be stored in the art room and will be returned to them at the end of the school year.

In addition to working within the seven elements of art, students will be learning about famous artists. Some artists that will be featured are Piet Mondrian, Yayoi Kusama, Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, and more! Be on the lookout for art inspired by these artists.

I look forward to getting to know ALL of the students at OLMC and hope each child enjoys working and creating with me each week.
