4th Grade Art and Homework

4th Grade Art at KMS!

  Look here for any information you may need, in addition to the MPArts Homework Calendar.
 Please be sure to bring your sketchbook and a pencil to class each time. Bring your black pen as well in case you need it.
Students keep a log of homework assigned in the back of their sketchbook. 
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.

Today is our first art class, and will be an introduction to art here at KMS. We will talk about class expectations, label our sketchbooks, create our Homework Log in the back of the sketchbook, and make sure you are all comfortable finding the MPArts, or Electives, Homework calendar (found on the KMS4th webpage), and make our way to Mr. Faraj's webpage, where more detailed information can be found.
