         Welcome to 5th Grade Art!
Introduction:

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  My name is Mrs. Cleary, and I will be your child’s art instructor.  My undergraduate studies were in Education at Indiana University, and am currently working on my master's degree from Morningside College.  I also received my art endorsement after completing a program in art education from Morningside College.  

Our Classroom:

    

    Each class will meet with me 5 times per week for a 12 week period.   We will be spending the majority of our time creating unique works of art using different mediums and techniques.  We will also be learning about career options in the arts and exploring product design and marketing.  Throughout the trimester students will revisit the fundamentals of art while building on them and learning new concepts. We will discover famous artists and explore different styles of painting and art from around the world. 


Activities:    


I also lead Junior Art club, which will meet after school on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.  If your student loves art, or has an aptitude for it, please encourage them to consider joining. I look forward to an exciting and creative school year with your children!
