Dear Parents and Students,

We are well on our way in our 2nd quarter in the art room at Blessed Trinity Catholic School.

I’d like to congratulate 8th graders,  Amber A. and Allan B.  Their art design was chosen from our school to be considered for this year’s 2017 Diocese Christmas card !  Beautiful works of art were submitted from many students and grade levels at Blessed Trinity.  Thank you for participating and sharing your work!  We look forward to seeing what work is chosen for the final Christmas card at the Diocese !

6th and 7th grade students will begin their State Fair projects in art class during this 2nd 9 week grading period.  This is a cross-curriculum study with Mrs. Atkinson in Media.  Students in both 6th and 7th grade need to bring in a empty cereal box for their project.

Bishop Kenny will host their 2018 Grade School Art Exhibition and Art Show.  Ten pieces of art work will be chosen from Blessed Trinity students to go on display.  The exhibit will be Friday February 2, 2018,  5:00 -7:00 pm.  Students will learn more about this in the weeks to follow.  Please plan to attend if your child’s work is selected.  Parents will be notified if their students work is chosen for display.

Please come by and visit the art hallway at school and enjoy the fantastic work displayed by all our students in the various grade levels.

Mark your calendars for  Blessed Trinity Catholic School art students’ art show on Tuesday April 17, 2018 from 6:30-8:00pm!  More information about our art show will be sent later.

To accomplish our goals in the art room, please help me reinforce the expectations I have for each student.

A- always listen

R- raise your hand to ask or tell

T- time used wisely, stay focused

I- inside voices

S -share and respect art supplies

T -try your best!

The art grading policy is as follows:

80% of each art project is based on meeting the art criteria and standards for that project.

20% class participation is a daily grade during each project; following the above printed class “Artist” rules.

Kathy Strandes
