Distance Learning: Art

Dear Parents

On Tuesday 17 March, students will bring home their art portfolio. This is the collection of art pieces they have created this school year. Please know this is a working document which they will need for their Distance Learning. Therefore, they should store it safely upon arriving home, and await instructions for the work next week.

From 23rd March, Students will receive activites for art twice a week. Activites are designed for 40 minutes each time. Students may want to, and can, spend more time on their art. However they should of course manage their time with other subjects. Please see here, to know which days they are expected to work on art. The information will come via their classroom teacher. Every time they work on their art, students should document their progress on Seesaw.

As mentioned above, please keep the portfolio in an accessible place. Some of the distance learning will probably involve working on, photographing, or reflecting upon the work in the folder. It is therefore, very important to keep until 1 May, as it is important to your child’s art program.

Preparing at home for Distance Learning Art

  • Please help them find a workspace – a kitchen table for example.
  • They have been provided an ‘art pack’ which contains a sketchbook and pencil only. They should try to return this to school in August.
  • Online activities will be created in a way that ensures students only need a pencil and paper. However if there are more art materials such as paints, crayons, markers and larger paper in the house, students are encouraged to use them. This is far more fun and interesting for them!

Thank you for your support in these times. Feel free to email me with any questions on Helen.Arnold@aas.ru
