Welcome back to another exciting, creative, messy, FUN school year in the art room!

Please check your child's schedule to see when he/she has art. While we do our best to keep ourselves and our area clean, accidents happen, so it would be a good idea not to have your child wear his/her favorite outfit that day.

Smocks are strongly encouraged for all 1st graders and optional for all other elementary artists. While those little plastic aprons with the pockets are adorable, they don't cover offer very much protection. An old adult button-down shirt is ideal--students can put them on backwards and ask a friend to button just the top button.

E-mail is the best and fastest way to reach me with a comment, question, or a concern: niemisr@frankfordschool.org
 
Cant wait to get stARTed! 
 
Tip from Art Educators of NJ (AENJ):
Ask you child to visualize, to draw, to react, and to comment on art EVERYWHERE you go!
