Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to Art! I am Mrs. Flanagan, the Visual Arts teacher. I am absolutely thrilled to be sharing my love of art with your children.  I truly believe that all students have unique and creative abilities. My goal is to bring these talents out in your children. I look forward to meeting you on back to school night.  Please contact me anytime with questions or concerns: rflanagan@pway.org or 732-752-0444 ext. 5332.

Oreo, our class bunny, is back again and waiting to play with all her new and returning students. The art room has been rearranged to accommodate a studio approach to art making. 

This year all students will be added to their class group on Schoology. Schoology will be used for communication between students and teacher as well as for submitting finished work and accessing documents.
All 6th, 7th and 8th grade students will use their iPads to down load apps to use to create art and store and record their progress.  All assignments done outside of class will be posted there. It is the students responsibility to access and complete these assignments. Please check your child's assignments and progress and  check Genesis regularly for grades and assignments; in class and at home.

Students will be creating their own sketchbooks again this year to keep and record their visual ideas and thoughts. Students will continue to refine their drawing skills and painting skills through observational drawing. Their sculpture assignments will include sewing, proper use of hand tools, and clay. The elements and principals of design and art history will be addressed within each art assignment. Grade specific syllabi will be used to assess all students.  All grades will be assessed using task specific rubrics as well as a self-assessment rubric. Student cooperation and a positive attitude is crucial to a good grade. Students are responsible to make up missed work.

Art club begins in October and all students are welcome to join. Please see Mrs. Flanagan for a permission slip.

Please send or questions or concerns to rflanagan@pway.org

Have a great year!
