Children can produce a lot of artwork throughout the course of a year in our elementary art class. To start off the school year, students learn about and practice classroom proceedures, make sketchbooks and/or create portfolios. K-2 will make portfolios and 3-5 will make both sketchbooks and portfolios.
The sketchbooks will be used for sketching out our ideas, free-hand draw time or drawing/warm up activities. The portfolio will hold a list of items that students are to draw when they say, "I'm finished! What do I do now?"
The portfolios will be used to store art throughout the year and transport artwork safely home from school at the end of the school year. Students will select at least one artwork to hang during our Elementary Art Show in the spring. I may select pieces to enter into art contests.
