4th Grade Art and Homework

4th Grade Art at KMS!

Welcome to Kittredge Magnet School incoming 4th graders! I look forward to being your art teacher for the next three years. My goal is for you to gain as many new skills and learn as many new techniques as possible, and to improve on those you already have. I also hope you will walk away with an understanding of how the visual arts are a part of our everyday life, and a record of human history.

 
 Look here for any information you may need, in addition to the MPArts Homework Calendar.
Please be sure to bring your portfolio and a pencil to class each time. Bring your black pen as well in case you need it.
Use the "Calendar with Art Days" tab to see a calendar of upcoming art days.  The teacher's name indicates who will bring you to art. Instead of that class, you will have art class. If you see a teacher's name that teaches you, then you have art on that day.
