      Kindergarten to Second Grade: Use the Extended Learning link: 

    I will be posting the art activity on my website under the “extended learning” link. 
    PLEASE be sure to check our "Class Story" on DOJO. Pictures of your child's work can be posted in a private message to my email.  Also, keep all the works in a paper folder to bring in when we return to school.  THANK YOU! 


    I will post the art activity for each group according to their regular school schedule. The students will have 24 hours to finish their assignments. They will receive the expectations, instructional resources, related readings, videos, and instructions that can help them to understand the activity. 


    On Dojo, the activities are posted under the “portfolio” of each class. (Kindergarten and Second Grade). Also, my lessons plans for these classes are posted every week on my school website under “ Extended Learning” 


    Each week my students will work on an art project that will require them to apply the elements of art according to the art curriculum. 




    The goals for this school year are set by the New Jersey Department of Education Standards and the Orange Public Schools Curriculum, which includes drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery, two- and three- dimensional art, mural project, knitting, art history and art from various cultures. We ask parents to take the time to reinforce art skills at home and support students by attending the Art Exhibits and Performing Arts Events. If you would like to volunteer to hang up artwork, help with preparations for art shows, projects in class or community projects, please contact the office.


    1. CURRICULUM: We look forward to a productive and exciting year. We foster a safe, positive, and productive environment for the students so that they can express their thoughts, ideas, creativity, and feelings through the arts. Art is used across the curriculum, incorporating Math, Science, Art History, Language Arts, and Social Studies. Students will explore the world around them, learn the elements of design and principles of art, and learn to critique and use various art tools, media, and techniques.


    1.  MATERIALS: Please provide pencils, an eraser, sharpener, ruler, folder, sketchbook, and a black sharpie for the art class. Please remind students to bring a pencil and sketchbook to art class. They can also bring their personal markers, crayons, or colored pencils if desired. Also, some art projects are messy; you may want to send an old t-shirt or smocks with your child to wear in the art class. Tag with his/her name and grade.
    1. RECYCLED MATERIALS: If you have any old newspapers, magazines, old picture frames, plastic bottles, poster boards or any art materials at home, please feel free to donate them to the visual arts department for student art projects.


    1. GRADING: Students are graded on a 4-Point Rubric, based on effort, following directions, organization, working in groups, clean up after work, participation,  tests, and completion of art projects.
