Art News

Welcome back Cougars! I had a wonderful summer and I hope you and your family did too! As we start this new school year, I just wanted to remind you of a few things that are very important to our lower school Art program:

  1. Even though we wear aprons in the art room, messes and stains still occur often, even for me! When your child has art as an Enrichment, be thoughtful about what they wear on those days.
  2. I usually, but not always, keep projects we create during the school year so that we can display them in the hallway, use them for Grandparents Day and other display/ classroom purposes. You will see most projects coming home near the end of the school year.
  3. As always, we are looking for donations! Wipes , Germx, and Kleenex are always needed in the art room.

Thank you for always supporting the Art program at CA and remember to ask your children what they are learning and doing in the art room! Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns at jbaldwin@clarksvilleacademy.com
