WELCOME– This year our theme, “It’s All About Texture”. We will explore some of the same projects students always look forward to and several new ones this year focusing on how we can use texture in our Art. I believe each child has the potential to create beautiful art work. I want to provide positive experiences so children learn to love and be proud of the art they create. If you ever have a concern, please make an appointment to see me. I want your child to love being here at Art.


OPEN HOUSE was packed in the Art room with many students dropping in to say hello. The students had fun finding their texture square among all the ones on the bulletin boards outside the cafeteria.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT– This year I hope to include some projects highlighting artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Robert Delaunay, Claude Monet, Gustav Klimt and Jasper Johns.

Parents, you can support our art program in two ways:

First, use your PriceChopper AdvantEdge card and ask at your local store to have North Warren be your designated school. Our school code is 16317.  The Tools for Schools program donates money to our school each April to be used for Art supplies.

Second, visit our Artsonia site. I have displayed student’s art work on Artsonia, an online gallery for over 7 years now. Parents say they love showing relatives their children’s art and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. You can purchase items with your child’s art on them to support our program. I intend to continue posting our art work so parents that don’t get the chance to visit and see our hallway displays can see the great work our students are doing. NOTE:  parents must sign up for an Artsonia account to be able to see their child’s work and have their child’s work visible to others. Only their first name is visible for their safety. This is the best way Artsonia has to meet the requirements of different states regarding privacy & Internet access. If you have already signed up, thank you, and your child’s work is already visible. Artsonia will email you when new art has been posted so you don’t miss anything! If you have not signed up, you may view the art of students whose parents have signed up.

DONATION suggestions for the Art room are different than last year. Your help is always appreciated. Please click here for the list.

Thanks to all those who support our program.
