Welcome to Miss Clark's Art Room

 

We have many talented artists here at Wenonah Elementary School and I am very proud to be able to teach each and every one of them!  I believe it is very important that your child is excited to visit the art room every week and that they look forward to participating in all of the valuable lessons to be learned.  Art is crucial to your child's education.  Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills.  Participating in art can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork.  Please visit the "Did you know...?" section to learn more about how art class benefits your child.

 

So far this year....


We are working with the basic elements and priciples of art.  Students are being introduced to line, shape and color.  We are studying works by Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian.  Please stay tuned!

 

Coming up....

 

Students will be studying artwork created by famous artists throughout history.  Different techniques will be taught and new materials will be used.  It is important that our artists have the opportunity to experiment with different styles and techniques.  Studying historic pieces of artwork and the artists that have created them will open new doors to each student's creative thinking process.
