Welcome Back!

Welcome back, Sharks! I am so happy to see you in the art room this year. We are able to use our art centers, which will include: drawing, collage, painting, fiber arts, sculpture, clay, and architecture. We will also have visiting art centers, such as collaborative projects, mask-making, and wearable art. We’ve had a great first week with the drawing center and can’t wait to open more centers!
