Last week of Distance learning!

Hello Timberwolves,

First of all, I want to congratulate you on completing another school year.  I also want to congratulate you on completing art projects virtually.  I am thankful that we can connect through technology. I love opening my mailbox and receiving pictures of your masterpieces.  I hope art has been a way for you to express your emotions, feelings, and a way to pass the time.  I know it has for me!  For those of you wondering about your art and when you will get it, I plan to distribute art when we return for the next school year.  If you are a 6th grader, I will send out more information about picking up your art portfolio also at the beginning of the new school year.  If you have a younger sibling, I will send your art home with them.

Lastly, I miss you all very much!  I miss teaching art in the classroom and seeing your smiling faces.  We will get there soon! Take care and have a safe & memorable summer!

Love,

Mrs. Adamos

Distance Learning Art Lessons for the week of April 13

Hello Families!

It is great to connect with you all through technology during this “Stay at Home” order.  I miss my students and I miss being able to teach art in the classroom.  But I will do the best I can to provide you with art lessons and activities to help you reach your creative outlet during this time.  Each week I will provide an art lesson, daily drawing challenges, an artist of the week, and supplemental art websites. If you would like to e-mail me to say hello or with any questions, you can reach me at Joanne.Adamos@cvesd.org.

With love and from a distance,
