“Be amazed at the heights to which you are called”

Pope John Paul II

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome back to school as we begin our 2017-2018 school year!

We will soar to great artistic heights this year as we challenge our creativity in visual art projects that highlight pivotal time periods of art, art history, cultural art, and art of famous artists, past and present.  Our students will continue to engage in different forms of art mediums while learning and identifying the art terms, art elements and principles of their artwork.  Students will create art independently, in collaboration with classmates and through cross-curriculum projects through out the year.   Please come by and visit the art hallway and enjoy the fantastic work displayed by our students in the various grade levels.

Blessed Trinity Catholic School art students will host an art show in April 2018!  More information about our biennial 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.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, I can be contacted at strandes@blessedtrinitycatholicschool.org


Thank you,

Kathy Strandes
