The Art Room....Let's Blog!
One idea that I have to use this blog for is to showcase student artwork and the art room itself for my middle school students in grades 5-8. Many things go on in the art room. Yes, we make art and NO, we do not just COLOR!! We CREATE and INNOVATE!! We EXPRESS our FEELINGS and our IDEAS. This can be a place for my students, their parents/guardians and my community to come to when they want to write, see and read about what is happening in the H.M.S art room. This is a great place to advocate my program, especially because too often the ARTS get overlooked. I can, as the H.M.S. art teacher, keep students, teachers, administrators, parents/guardians and the community updated when it comes to lessons and information that happens in the art room. The students can even communicate and discuss topics assigned in various lessons through the 30 day rotations that they have art class. Come back soon to see what is going on with the blog and the H.M.S. art students work.
