6thGrade2015

Welcome!

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year, which will be filled wit h colorful and beautiful art created by your children!

This year, art classes at Salem will have a curriculum based on the elements of art; line, shape, form, color, texture, space, value (all grades), and the principles of art; movement, unity, harmony, variety, balance, contrast, proportions and pattern/rhythm (grades 4-6). Students will learn theory of art and will use that theory in practice. They will explore and discover why art is important to them, and why they love creating it.

Sketches:

All students will bring one sketch to art class every week. The sketches must be in a spiral bound sketchbook so that they will not be lost or misplaced throughout the year. Sometimes grades 1-3 students may lose a homework assignment (assigned sketch subject). If this happens, they will be required to create an alternative sketch of any subject. It is more important that the student continues to sketch, have fun, AND bring their work to class.

Volunteers

I would very much appreciate parent volunteers during art classes or after school. I will also need volunteers to help me when we display the children’s art for special occasions like Christmas, Easter and Open House. It’s a great way to participate in the Salem community! Contact me at the school to let me know if you can help.

4th Grade -California Missions Project

We hope to exhibit California Missions Project during our “Open House” in 2016

In the 4th grade students study and learn about the “21 California Missions.” In addition to the social study program each student will build a model of a chosen California Mission. The building of the models will ALL take place at home. We will build one California Mission sample during art class. You can buy a kit of the mission at Michael’s, but please keep in mind that, this is your child’s opportunity to demonstrate his/her creativity/ talents. Please, DON’T spend too much money! Below are some examples of materials that can be used to create the mission model. Feel free to use other materials besides these:

  • Cardboard
  • Styrofoam
  • Sugar cubes
  • Plywood
  • Clay
  • Salt dough
