Art with Mrs. Beaubien
WELCOME BACK! I hope you all had a restful, yet fun, Holiday Break! I am extremely excited for 2nd semester as I have some awesome learning planned as both 7th and 8th grade start moving into more advanced two-dimensional techniques/media, as well as, three dimensional media. Both grades are working towards a solid understanding in various media foundations so that in quarter four we can move towards a choice based classroom where the students are choosing their projects, subject matter, style, etc. to create meaningful pieces. We also have a few big art events coming up this quarter!
We will be having our art show/program fundraiser at the very end of the quarter. I have been collecting all two dimensional pieces throughout year. Towards the end of February, we will be going through all of our collected work to choose one of our favorites. Each student will have a professionally matted and framed piece of artwork for purchase during our Spring Fling on March 14, 2019. This artshow is our big Art Program fundraiser so keep your eyes peeled for further information as we get closer.
Also coming soon, our 2nd Annual "Paint & Pop", kind of like the paint and sips, but school friendly! We will have 2 hours of painting fun, popcorn to snack on, and pop to sip on! Further information and sign-up will be posted soon. This is a limited affair, so keep an eye out!
