Welcome to Ms. Birch's art room. We have many exciting art-related activities planned for this year.
In art class, students will examine the meaning of art in their lives, as well as discover the art of other cultures, times, and places. Using a variety of art materials, they will use art elements and design principles to create art as personal expression. They will also learn to critique and evaluate their own art, and that of other artists.
Each student should bring in an art smock that will be stored in their homerooms and brought to art each week. Please send in a short-sleeved t-shirt large enough to loosely cover your child's clothing. This shirt will likely get covered in paint so an old t-shirt is recommended. Please write your child's first and last name on the t-shirt with a permanent marker.
If you have any questions about your child's progress in art or about the art program, I am available via e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone after 3 pm at (215) 750-2800, ext. 1317.
