We had a terrific art lesson yesterday.
Check it out on Facebook on Kids teaching Kids.

There is this awesome 4th grade young lady named Emma, who wanted to share her love of books and school during the quarantine. She and her mom came up with "Kids teaching Kids" on Facebook. Her mom, Kelly, runs the behind the scene Facebook coordination and oversees, while Emma's teaches other kids. Emma loves books and does daily readings with her evergrowing fan base. If you might like to join Emma and me tomorrow for my first ever Facebook Live Online Art Lesson, reach out to her mom, Kelly, and she will send you an invite to the class. You can search on Facebook for Kids teaching Kids or Kelly Lentz (her mom). Come join us-we would love to share some fun!

 

A note from Kelly:

Join us in Kids teaching Kids, if you are not a member please reach out!
The group is private only because we have allowed Emma to really take control.
It has given our kids and yours a safe place to communicate and stay connected during this.
If you are already a member please add students!

 

 


 

 

 

 Don't forget to go outside with your adults on April 1 at 7:00 pm

and shine some lights

for our first responders!

Please take a picture of your family and your light and send it to me, so we can make a beautiful video! 


 

 

 

 

Send Some Love Art Assignment

Hi everyone, 

Over this week, would you please Send Some Love? Mrs. Fox has asked all of us to reach out and send some love. We are doing this by cutting out hearts and writing notes to our ESSENTIAL People. 

What is an ESSENTIAL person? That is anyone who is helping during this time. Can you think of some Essential People and their jobs? I made a list for myself and it is pretty long, and I keep adding to it. I will share it with you below. 


The way we do this is to make a card, note, heart-whatever you can-to an Essential person. Then display it or share it. Sharing it can be tricky right now so look below for some “safe sharing” opportunities. I have made a video going over how to make a heart to help you. See the link below. 


Finally, once you are done, can you please take a picture of it and turn it in to me on my Art Google Classroom or email it to me? Or to your teacher? Or Mrs. Pomatto? We will take them and make a beautiful display somehow. For those of you who send it to me-I will put it up on our beautiful Online Art Gallery.


I have included a sample I made for a former student of mine who is a nurse. I didn’t have a bunch of art supplies-just some paper and crayons, but it was enough. On the back, I wrote her a note. I am going to take a picture of it and email it to her. 

 

KIDS! When you take your picture of your love note, please make sure your last name is not showing! It's ok for your first name, but no last names or I can't post it. If your last name is on it, when your adult takes the picture, cover it with your hand;)


Have fun and SEND SOME LOVE!

 


 

How to make a symmetrical heart:

 


 

Here are some examples of Essential Jobs. I keep adding to it. If the Essential person’s job isn't listed here that you want to write to, please use whatever works for you. This is just a basic list to work from. 

   Your adults in your home: The adults in your home probably didn’t go to teacher college. For the last two weeks, they have learned how to teach, plus continuing their regular jobs. It hasn’t been easy for them.  

   Your Family: Right now, Family is everything. Everyone is pulling together to help each other.

   Doctors, Nurses, Hospital Personnel, EMT’s, Paramedics: These people are so important. We need to say thank you to them. 

   Firemen, Policemen, the Military: These essential people keep everything safe. We really need them.

   Grocery People: The grocery people work tirelessly stocking the shelves with food so we can eat. That's a very hard job and one that is so important.

   Delivery People: Mail people, FedEx, UPS, and all of the other delivery services are making sure we can get what we need at home and to be able to stay home. That’s super important.

   Our teachers, our custodians, our secretaries, our aides, our security staff, our administration and our Board of Education: Even though we can’t be with you, we are here for you. We miss you terribly and can’t wait to see you again.

   Our Cafeteria People: Did you know that Miss Sue and her crew of lunch people are making food for people who might need it? That’s such an important job.

   City Work Employees and Trash Collectors: This job is a hard one-they help keep our world normal.

   Our Government leaders: They are keeping us safe.

There are so many more. The list is endless.

 

Safe ways to share your note:

Put your note in your window.

Put your note on a tree outside for people to see.

Put a note on your trash cans on trash day.

Put your note in your car window.

Email your note after you take a picture of it.

Mail your note.

Put your note on your bike for when you go on your bike ride.

Carry your note with you and hold it up when you go for your walk.

Put your note on your mailbox.

Put your note on your front door.

 

Can you think of other safe ways to share your notes?

 

Please make sure to send me a picture of your notes. I can’t wait to see them.

Have fun!

Love,

Mrs. Gragg

tgragg@brigantineschools.org

Checking in-have you had a few seconds to look at the art homework for while you are at home? If you and your parents could do the art project listed below SOMETIME BEFORE WE GET BACK TO SCHOOL, and bring it back to school when we reopen-it would really help. My plan is to move right into our glow in the dark project as soon as we return. 
PARENTS: PLEASE DO NOT STRESS OVER THIS.
My hope is that it offers your child an opportunity to be creative while continuing what we are learning about in art class. 

Enclosed please find the GRADE LEVEL PROJECTS

broken down by grade.

Dear Kindergarten Families,

Our Kindergarten children are learning about the Plains Native American people. They learned that Native American people of the Plains lived in a tipi (teepee). Please review the site below with your child for some basic information and then have them watch the tutorial and go to an online drawing tutorial and make one, or make it with regular art supplies. 


https://nativeamericans.mrdonn.org/plains/teepees.html


KIDS: Please watch this!

This tutorial is for using real art supplies. You can modify this to online by watching first and then creating on an online drawing program. 

https://youtu.be/l9MRWqf0h78  online tutorial


Please make a tipi. Either online as a drawing, or as a real drawing. 

 ALSO-you can decorate the Tipi anyway you like using the symbols enclosed. Remember-take a picture and email it to me!


Here is a tutorial on the pictographs or pictures that might be on the side of a tipi.

sample:



1st

Dear Parents and kids:

Currently, our students are learning about Native American people of the Plains. We are learning about the beautiful clothing called REGALIA. One part of the regalia are MOCCASINS. Our first grade kids started their Moccasins in school and were sent home with their project. If you received those supplies and can finish your project, that would be great!

Another option is the Native American Headdress. You can do this instead of the moccasins or in addition to them! Have fun!


Kids: Watch this!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HTwu4fyVsg Native American Headdress

Then either draw this online on your favorite online program OR use paper, pencil and stuff to color. 

Please remember to take a picture of the headdress or save it, and then ask your big person to email it to me!


There are a bunch of other fun drawing tutorials listed in the other grade level activities-

feel free to give them a try! 

Sample:


2nd

Dear Second Grade Families: 

The children just learned about “Cradleboards” in art class. A cradleboard is the baby carrier Native American people carried their babies in.

Please read about Cradleboards together at this site:

http://www.native-languages.org/cradleboard.htm

 

Sample:


Online: Watch this!

https://youtu.be/9NrN8BEdhHs


Then please go to your favorite online drawing program. 

You can use any program that is comfortable for you. Please try to draw a cradleboard and baby. Have fun being creative! Don’t forget to make your baby cute!

At home using your own supplies: Using your supplies, please try to draw a cradleboard and baby. If you do this on regular paper, and you have crayons or markers, please color this in. Have fun!

Parents: Please take a picture of your child’s creation and email it to me.


3rd

Dear Third Grade Families:

Our students in third grade are currently learning about landscape drawing using pictures of the American Plains and adding features such as a tipi, Buffalo, horse…

The enclosed tutorials are fun examples of how to draw some the features. 


Children: Using either an online drawing program or real supplies, draw a GROUND LINE first (it’s a line from one side of the paper to the other side). Now you have a sky and a ground. After looking at the tutorials, start building your land and adding your features. Have fun, take your time and email me what you finish.

Can you draw a butterfly?
Let's check out old school:
and new school:
Which works for you? Send me your drawings!

LET'S MAKE CLAY!!!!
Before you cringe in despair and fear-
clay is a POWERFUL motivator.
Harness the beauty of the art supply and classroom management-it works!
Make the clay together and then use it when needing some positive reinforcement.
It's worked for me for 29 years!
And you probably have all the supplies in your kitchen.
Check out the video below to see how to make clay with flour, salt, water and a pinch of paint (or food coloring) if you have it.
 Here are some fun ways to use the clay:
When your little person is done, please take a quick picture of it and email it to me at:
I can't wait to see everyone's creations!

Another fun activity!
Watch this video on Alaskan Animals-super cool and 360 degrees if you can figure it out.
Then choose an animal and try to draw it.
Remember-whenever you draw an animal, squint your eyes and imagine the animal as shapes. Make a shape animal first out of circles, ovals, rectangles, triangles... Then cover it with "skin". Erase the shapes and then color your animal in and add details. My fav is the Beluga whale...
send me what you made for our online art gallery!
Check below the lesson plans for some really fun interactive art tutorials.
One of my favorite Youtube art sites is 
"Art For Kids Hub".
AWESOME tutorials.
Check this one out:
PLEASE have fun and enjoy!

Thanks to everyone who has sent me their child's artwork-our gallery is growing!
Please email me your creations at tgragg@brigantineschools.org

If you have had a chance to try a fun art project,

please send it to me!

Looking forward to seeing your creations!!!!!

 

tgragg@brigantineschools.org

Send it to me!!!!!

 

 

Please try to do the project listed below for your grade level.

It’s great fun, relaxing, educational and easy to do.

If you finish, please email me what you have done. 


FOR ALL GRADE LEVELS:

Currently, our students are learning about the Plains Native Americans. Each grade level is in the middle of a project. That project can easily be converted into an “online” project or an “at home using your own stuff” project. If using online resources, please make sure you are comfortable with your child on the resource indicated. Also if using an online drawing program, feel free to use whatever one your child currently plays with on their laptop, ipad, your phone or computer. The only necessity for the program is that it has some drawing or painting tools and can be sent to me by email. You can even use ones that can’t be exported-just grab your phone and take a picture of their screen and email it to me. 


You can use this one if you like it:

Free Drawing resource ONLINE

https://sketchpad.app/ or the same version on your Iphone or Android.


You can also use real supplies. Whatever works for you is fine. No need to buy supplies- just use what you have at home. 


Please get familiar with the drawing tools (either regular or online). Using the pictures from the website indicated in each project, sketch out a picture of your project. Have fun experimenting with the tools. If you do this on regular paper, and you have crayons or markers, please color this in. 


Parents: If possible, please send their project to me via an attachment by email. 

My email: tgragg@brigantineschools.org. Any pictures, questions, finished work, work that is confusing-feel free to email me. I will be monitoring my email constantly and will email you back.


See my website for this information. I will also post some fun extra art activities to try. Additionally, I will update the website with more information when necessary-check back often!

Other fun art things to do-

Need that study break? Try some of the following things to do:


Stand outside and look around. Take a picture of your favorite view. Get paper, look at the picture inside (or stay outside if it is a nice day!) and draw what you see. Don't forget to draw a groundline first!



Take any paper (printer paper works great) and draw a picture. It can be of anything special to you-your pet, your brother or sister, your parents, your room-anything. Draw using a pencil and then color it in. You can do this as many times as you would like! 


If you bring them to me when we get back to school, I will give you a buck for each picture. Happy drawing!

Collage Making Project:

Enclosed please find a collage making program for your student. They will need a little guidance understanding how to choose objects and play with them, but they should be fine creating a collage at home. A collage is when you take found objects and place them in an interesting design. This program is a great free online resource for kids to build a collage

THIS YEAR'S ARTS NIGHT IS:
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL
PT. II
The date is June 4, 2020. 
Please mark your calendars now:)
 
This year in your child's art class, we will be studying the art, culture and history of America.
We will be learning through art, about the indigenous people and the immigrants who populated this beautiful land.   
Make sure to come see our students shine on Arts Night 2020!

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO LENT A HAND TO MAKE ARTS NIGHT 2019 WONDERFUL!
 
The Brigantine Elementary Art Room is a wonderful and exciting part of your child's Specials week. Each day, your child goes to a "Special". The Specials are art, music, gym, computers, and STEM. We, as the Specials team, teach in a thematic, goal oriented format each year based on the yearly global Arts Night theme. We teach our curriculum based on a Multicultural Approach to Arts Education (a BEST Practice Award winner). What that means for your child is that as we teach about places around the world in our individual classes, we, as Specials, each will reach your child in a different learning style.
