    Hello Everyone!  

    This is going to be such a wonderful school year!   This year while in art, we are going to be making amazing masterpieces! You young artists are so talented…I am practically bursting at the seams with excitement over what you will be creating this year! Get ready to paint, collage, draw, cut, think, apply, question and wonder with me while in our Art Studio. 


    Okay boys and girls, roll up those sleeves …and let’s get our hands dirty!!! 

    See you in art!



    Your Art Teacher,

  • Sweet Sweet Memories Haw River Elementary's Art Festival 2011/12

    Posted by:

    At the end of May of 2012 we had a wonderful evening filled with art!  Everyone seemed to enjoy creating puppets, crowns, and bookmarks.  Students enjoyed having their faces painted, receiving a balloon sculpture, looking at artwork, and just having quality time with our families.  Lots of our students led their family around our school to view the school wide Art Gallery.  It was wonderful finding out if their art won1st, 2nd, or 3rd place for their grade!

    What part of the Art Festival was your favorite?  Did you have more than one favorite part?
