Art Portfolios are sent home twice a year; once right before winter break and again before summer break. After projects have been on display, I collect the work and store it inside the portfolio each child personalized at the beginning of the year. Hopefully, you can sit down with your child and look at all their art they have created over the semester and share in meaningful dialogue together.
Although we try very hard to keep clean in the art room, our creativity sometimes get the best of us and we end up with a mess. Please dress for art in darker, more casual clothes and please remember that most everything we use is washable and non-toxic so with a little elbow grease and some pre-treatment laundering should go smoothly.
Flatirons Elementary will participate in KidzArt again this year! This is a wonderful fundraising opportunity that supports the arts at Flatirons. KidzArt is a company that reproduces your child’s artwork on professionally made products like magnets, mugs and mousepads. This will be our first major project in art. Please look to the art page on the school website for more information regarding ordering soon.
