A Note From the Art Teacher- This website is a special site designed for the parents and is not a regular part of my teaching methods. I am providing this site for you to be able to assist your child and make sure that you have all the same knowledge that I give your child during their class time. I do post the homework on the marker board every Monday (and it stays on the board until the next Monday) and I constantly change the assignment at the beginning of each week. I also give the assignment to the students at the end of the period verbally so the student have both the visual and verbal cues given to them for the homework. I also post the artist of the month and the master's work on the marker board and change them every new month. So students also have the visual of who they can write about if they are interested in doing that months artist or the master's work. I am not required by the state to post the information on the website but feel that the best way to help your child is to always have a way that the parents can check up and find out information that is being given to your child. This site is a benefit to you and your child. If there are questions or concerns you have about your child I am always willing and able to discuss them through email, phone, or conference. Thank you. K. Atkison All art classes have homework every week. On the second week of class all the students will need to have a sketchbook which they will be responsible for. If they wish they can purchase a sketchbook from several stores. We do offer a sketchbook at the school store that fits the size required for the class for $7.00. They will also need to have a purple pocket folder to carry the sketchbooks they create so they can safely carry the book home and back to class weekly. Subject matter is assigned at the end of the class period. If your child does not remember what the homework is, please have them create a free-drawing. If your child is in second grade they are expected to draw in pencil at least half of the page. The students in third grade must draw in pencil filling the whole page. Fourth graders must draw the picture covering the whole page and color at least half of the page. Fifth graders need to draw and color the whole page. Students can color in crayons or color pencils. As of the second week of school I will be listing the weekly assignments for homework on this page. The assignment topic is assigned on the week it is listed under and the work will be due to the teacher the following week. This will assist you in finding out what your child was assigned for the week in question.
