Welcome to K-8 Art

Your child will be bringing home a Parent Information Sheet or Art Contract after his/her first day of art class.  This sheet will outline important information your child will need to know for art class. *Grade 3-8 students will be required to have this contract signed by a parent and returned back to me at their next class.

Please visit my class notes/blog (under Specials on the school website) on a weekly basis to catch a glimpse of what your child is doing in art class. You will find information regarding our latest project, up-coming events, important dates, possible homework assignments, art contests, and art-related links.

All students in K-8 should have a smock or old shirt.  Older students may keep this in their lockers.

Students in Gr. 3-8 will need their Chrome books.  They will receive important announcements, homework assignments etc. as well as reference information and videos related to our lessons. Homeroom teachers of Gr. 3-5 will be notified ahead of time if the students in their classes will need their chrome books for an up-coming art class. All Middle School Students should bring their chrome books to art class every week.

Middle School Students will be making an Art Journal (out of a cereal box they have brought in for homework) where they will be given a prompt to make a drawing. This Art Journal should be kept in their locker when not used for class.  If the Art Journal is taken home to complete an art assignment, it should be brought back to school by the assignment due date.

All completed student art work/projects are kept in Class Folders at school until they are returned to the students after the Fine Arts Festival (first week of June).

*This 2021-2022 school year, each class will be given a 5~minute mask break while they are sitting at their desk.  

This year I will be working at Trinity on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Should you have any questions you can email me at ekerwin@trinityli.org or call the school office, leave a message, and I will be happy to get back to you by the next day.

I am looking forward to a fun and creative year with all my classes!
