Welcome to Art! This is my 16th year as a teacher in New Caney ISD and I am thrilled to be the Art teacher here at Crippen Elementary School!
In the elementary art room, our focus is to help our artists explore their creativity by learning the Elements of Art (Line, Color, Value, Texture, Space, Shape, and Form), as well as the Principals of Design (Pattern, Contrast, Emphasis, Balance, Scale, Harmony, Movement, Unity, and Variety).
Students in the art room are graded on participation, cooperation, and effort. Fun is absolutely part of the creative process as well! Our Astronaut Artists understand that we must be respectful of our peers' efforts as well as our own. We also must be respectful of our resources in the art room. With that in mind, our Astronaut Artists will also learn about and be expected to demonstrate the proper use of art supplies and materials, especially because we have to share them with the whole school.
Throughout the year, our Astronaut Artists will create a myriad of artworks that will stay on campus until the end of the school year where they will each take all their artwork home in their very own personalized portfolio. There will be opportunities throughout the school year where student artwork will be on display either via a mural or Art exhibits/contests.
We are going to have an amazing time learning and creating this year!
