Dear artists of Erving Elementary, 

You have come up with amazing ideas and expressed yourselves so well in art this year. You’ve created and drawn, sculpted and printed, collaged, stitched and assembled. Your challenge is to do this now on your own! You don’t need fancy art materials! A box. Scissors. Magazines. Cut, curl and bend paper to make new worlds…or draw in the dirt with a stick. It is up to you!

Our classes have prepared you well for this - you’ve practiced how to come up with ideas on your own, how to select materials to work with, how to set up and clean up your work space, how to persist past problems, how to revise and edit, and how to share and offer feedback. I welcome you to work on your own and share your projects, whatever you make. I also will post ideas now and then to keep those creative juices flowing. They’re optional, and can be changed around as you wish. Feel free to email me a picture of what you made and I will post it in our online gallery. 

I miss you all and wish you well.

Ms. Stewart
