Elementary Students are welcome to explore different forms of art in my classroom this year! Students will be encouraged to grow and try new things as well as creatively express themselves.
The art classroom should always be a safe and welcoming place. However, we do use materials that require a level of maturity which I explain to the students at the beginning of the year. If I see a student misusing materials or threatening other students, there will be immediate consequences. Depending on the severity of the situation, a student may be asked to change seats or sit at a separate desk, be given an alternative assignment, or be sent to the principles office. I strongly believe that a student must understand how the consequences reflect the action, and I also believe that discussion about that situation is important. I will treat each situation with respect and understanding.
