Congratulations to Amelia Petersen for being selected as this year’s recipient of the Connecticut Association of Schools Celebration of the Arts award, which is given to an outstanding fourth grade student in the area of visual arts. Amelia will be honored in February, at the Aqua Turf in Southington. Congratulations!
Students have already started to work on this year’s theme for the art show which will be “The Farm”. They will be learning to draw and paint a variety of animals, creating sculptures from recycled supplies and using clay as well.
We have been gearing up for our annual art show. Please continue to save recycled supplies for the art room for our sculpture unit. If you have something unique that you regularly buy, that’s not on the list and you think we could use in the art room, please send me an email. email@example.com Space is limited for storage, so it would be best to check first. Be sure to make sure all recycled supplies are washed out before sending to school. J

A reminder to all parents: If any parent would like to volunteer to be a helper in the art room with mounting art work, or hanging artwork around the building or in the community, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org., or send a note to school. All art work your child completes in the art room will be saved for our annual art show in the spring. ~Mr. Granucci
