Visual Art for 5th & 6th Grade
Nancy Matheson, NBCT, Visual Art Specialist
Ø Visual Art is an elective course in which students produce personal art for shows and to keep.
Art students are not required to bring any art supplies.
*However, because of the rising costs of art supplies and equipment we are requesting that all students donate $5.00 to help with those costs.
- We do not recieve any funding for Art class supplies from the district. Our financial support for supplies and equiptment comes directly from our students and families through gifts and donations.
Ø All art requested funds go directly to buy the best art supplies and equipment possible so students may have a rewarding learning experience in art, exploring self-expression while practicing creative problem solving skills.
- The class that brings the highest percentage of their fee's back wins an art party, the privilege to listen to their own music on their devices during studio time and a few other benefits as opportunities arise.
Ø Thank you for all financial support that allows our students to have a high quality art program.
Student grades are given as Letter Grades and Percentages.
Studio Courtesy is always observed in the Canyon Ridge Visual Art
6th Grade Art Field Trip
The 6th grade have a special opportunity to participate in an Art Field trip to the
Oklahoma City Museum of Art and The Land Run Monument.
This trip is fully funded by the OKC Museum of Art,
without which, our students would not be able to
experience such a wide variety of professional artwork
from some of the most prestegious artists in the country.
The date of the field trip will be announced at the beggining of each quarter.
Parents are encouraged to be a sponsor.
If you have any questions, Please feel free to contact me at any time through the school office and I will return your call as soon as possible.
