in the art room!
Open Art is a time that the art room is open to students before school. They can continue projects they began in art or begin a new, self-directed project. This time allows for more one-on-one with me as well as a quieter workspace.
I began this program over 10 years ago when I observed the stress level of many students who felt they were rushed in their art making. After all, we do not all work at the same pace ... especially in a creative activity. Time must be allowed so that ideas can flow and execution can unfold.
So, the nuts & bolts of the program are this:
Students may come into the art room from 8am - 8:25am beginning Tuesday, September 19th. Each grade level has a day: Tuesday for grade 5, Wednesday for grade 4 and Thursday for grade 3. Friday is a day I reserve to invite students in so that I can work with them and Monday is a day that I do not have Open Art.
