Virtual art show instructions:
Thank you for all of your participation with our online art activities. We have some amazing students at Brasser and I would like to create an end of the year “virtual” art show with your help.
If you haven’t submitted artwork on www.artsonia.com to the “school closed” project. The Brasser code to upload you pictures from home is HRJJ-CJTS ( If the uploads don’t work you can still e-mail with a picture of your child’s work.)
I will be accepting submissions up until June 10th. At that time I will create the virtual art show. Please look back at the past lessons in schoology, or the school website link here for ideas if you haven’t already.
The goal is to get at least one work per child, so if you haven’t activated your child’s artsonia account yet please let me know and I can forward you the login information.
In light of all that has been going on in the world recently I thought this how to draw project “Be kind to everyone” would be appropriate. (The drawing is a little challenging for PK-2, so they may need a little help)
Remember deadline to submit artwork to me is June 10th
Below you will find At-Home Learning Opportunities that students may work on during the COVID-19 school closure.

The Gates Chili elementary art department uses a standards based curriculum to provide students with a unique opportunity to learn the skills that will foster creativity as they grow in their own exploration of the visual arts.
Kindergarten Students are introduced to the Art Room setting, new vocabulary and the 6 units of the elementary art curriculum; Landscape, Portrait, Still Life, Non-Objective, Architecture and Three-Dimensional art. They explore and experiment with materials and techniques, and begin to learn to describe and explain the choices they make.
1st Grade students begin to identify and classify their world through their art. They continue to build vocabulary to describe the choices they make in their creative process, and they start to compare images across settings, subjects, and cultures. They continue to develop work in the 6 units of the elementary art curriculum; Landscape, Portrait, Still Life, Non-Objective, Architecture and Three-Dimensional art.
2nd Grade students use art to explore their personal interests. They begin to develop preferences of material and techniques. They learn to compare art across time and places and an emphasis is made on multiple approaches to design problems. Students continue to develop work in the 6 units of the elementary art curriculum; Landscape, Portrait, Still Life, Non-Objective, Architecture and Three-Dimensional art.
3rd Grade artists begin to elaborate on their artistic expression. They apply their growing knowledge to their thinking and creative process. They begin to evaluate works of art and generate their own artist statements. Students continue to develop work in the 6 units of the elementary art curriculum; Landscape, Portrait, Still Life, Non-Objective, Architecture and Three-Dimensional art.
4th Grade artists apply criteria to their own art work and evaluate art in the world around them. They explore art in their community and learn to revise their work while in progress. Students continue to develop work in the 6 units of the elementary art curriculum; Landscape, Portrait, Still Life, Non-Objective, Architecture and Three-Dimensional art.
5th Grade artists learn to discuss art work and compare interpretations with their peers. They apply context and criteria to their evaluations and can generate their own artistic statements based on their work. Students continue to develop work in the 6 units of the elementary art curriculum; Landscape, Portrait, Still Life, Non-Objective, Architecture and Three-Dimensional art.
