Art Class Begins Aug. 24

Hello Families,

I am so excited to be teaching art in a new way this year. Teaching art to children is my favorite part of my day. I hope you will find art to be one of your child's favorite parts of their day too. Even though I will not be able to greet your child in our colorful classroom, I will still be able to see their work if they want to share it with me. I will be adding a place to display their masterpieces in a few weeks on the website. 

 This year art will begin on August 24th, the second week of school. We will start our Art lessons with simple materials for the first few weeks, things you should already have around your home; copy paper, pencil, eraser, black marker, and something to color with like crayons or colored pencils. After a few weeks, we will move to more specific items that I have included in a list below. 

You have three options for purchasing art supplies this year. Please choose what works best for your family budget. These should be purchased for each student; many of the supplies can be shared amongst families with multiple children. 

Whichever way you choose, please get your order in as soon as possible to allow for shipping times.

  1. You can order the supplies from my attached art supply list from BlickArt Supply. This is one-stop shopping, I have included links so you can see each product. There is a simple choice list and a second choice if you want to add a few better quality products.

  1. You can order a basic set from Edukit- shipping times estimated 6 -7 weeks. Click here to link to the Edukit website. 
  1. You can use the art supply list as your guide and price shop at Amazon, Target, or Discount School Supply. You may be able to find better prices this way.
