Our new school year has arrived! This is always a special time for teachers as we prepare for another school year with new goals and new energy.
One of these goals is to develop a positive learning environment. Our art studio should be a place where students feel respected, safe, challenged, and encouraged. That is why it is so important at the beginning of the year for students to practice positive art studio routines. Here are a few photos showcasing students following directions, listening attentively, respecting art materials, and respecting others!
4th Graders looking sharp!
And thanks to a Donors Choose grant from last spring, the art studio is now a more organized, efficient, and welcoming space. Now we can store artwork, art materials, and provide an art making space for every Garrison student.
Here are a few photos from the first day of school as students met their new teachers and greeted friends.
I’m excited to see how our students grow as artists this year! Thanks for supporting Garrison’s artists and feel free to contact me with additional information about your child, questions, class donations, or interest in volunteering in the art studio.
