Welcome to the Art Studio at Evergreen Mill Elementary School. I am excited to be your child’s art teacher this year. Your child will attend art class once a week for a 50 minute period in 1st thru 5th. Kindergarten has 30 minutes of art weekly.
Each grade level will be involved in several different forms of creating art including: drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, digital imaging, weaving, collage, assemblage and more. We will learn about a variety of cultures, artists and styles of art; and will create art projects which reflect what the students are learning in their classrooms.Throughout the year we will work with a variety of materials some of which may be messy. Students are encouraged to wear older clothes on their art day (I tell students that it is not a good idea to wear a tuxedo or ball gown on their art day!), and may bring their own smock with them to art class. I will try to have some smocks available if students forget their own. Most students are able to stay clean and while we do try to be as careful as possible, accidents do happen.Ms. Jernigan's ART POLICYNo Mistakes in Art!!!
Every child is an artist and is encouraged to work through their mistakes....mishaps make a creation more CREATIVE!
I am looking forward to a great year working with your child. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns. Come and visit us in the Art Studio, visitors are always welcome. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
