We will be starting this year with art classes, due to the fact that we cannot sing or share musical instruments. We will be using the supplies requested by the homeroom teachers along with some new supplies I will provide. (For example, if a child uses up their glue stick, I will have new ones on hand for them.) Each child will have their own set of supplies that they can take home with them if we go all virtual.
I am asking for the following additional supplies:
*a folder for art class with your child's name on it (remote learners do not need this)
*a closed pencil sharpener with a cap so students can sharpen pencils at their seat
(remote learners do not need this) Here's an example:
*a set of tempera sticks (6 or 12)
The prices of these have been fluctuating due to demand ($6 - $13 a set is average) -
You can get them at Michael's or Lakeshore in the store (Michael's has 20% off currently)
Here are some examples of what they look like: (kind of like colored glue sticks)
You can get them online here:

Here are a few examples - (again, prices are fluctuating, but you can find them for about $5 - 6)
If you have a left-handed child, I would suggest the kind that opens from the bottom (spiral on top).
I'm excited to (hopefully) see most of you again soon!
FOURTH GRADERS - Here is the information for the Partnership for a Drug Free New Jersey drawing contest:
This is a Virtual Art Show I created in Google Slides. It has photos I took of some of the art that was completed at school (that I hadn't handed back yet) and a sampling of what we've been doing at home. The artwork that hasn't been given back yet will be handed back at the beginning of the next school year. There are more examples of the art we completed during the school year (and past years) on the St. Thomas Art and Music Gallery website, which you can visit by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.
If your child likes art and wants some extra things to do to keep busy, here are some websites they might like:
http://www.getty.edu/gettygames/ This website uses flash and has some nice art games for the older ones.
http://colorwithleo.com/ This website is more geared towards the little ones, although it has a few games that are suitable for older children.
https://web.archive.org/web/20100706221501/http://www.albrightknox.org/artgames/html/home.html This website has paintings by artists featured in the Albright Knox art gallery that children can interact with. (Grades K-6)
https://www.fromthepond.com/pond-coloring-club This website has some nice coloring pages. Just print out on a printer and color. You have to sign up for a newsletter, but the coloring pages are free.
Here are some YouTube channels to check out:

Here is a project you can do with paper towel and toilet paper rolls:
This YouTube channel has lots of fun STEAM activities to do with children:
I will post more websites as I find them.
I have created a website for current and past artwork created in my classes and some information about art and music classes.
Hope you enjoy viewing our work as much as we enjoyed creating it!
