Welcome to the Eagle Creek Art Room!
Our school wide theme this year is “Oh, The Places You’ll Go”, based on the book “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss. Eagle Creek will be using this book for friendship week. In the art room we will be exploring this idea through art! We will start the school year by creating rockets to blast into space, then land among the stars just in time for our school wide art show which will be held during our second set of conferences down in the lower level hallway.
This year, we are welcoming Mrs. Braesch from Red Oak. Mrs. Braesch will be teaching 2 sections of second grade art at Eagle Creek.
We will have a big change in the art room this year. We will be starting to implement the new state art standards. Shakopee will be working on rolling out the standards for all grades over the next three years. This means there will be more voice and choice for our students in 4th and 5th grade during this school year. There will also be stations highlighting the different mediums we will be learning to use in the art room. Students will still be learning great ways to apply art concepts but now they will have options on what supplies they would use with which to create art.
Artist of the month is returning this year. Art works will be displayed each month in the glass display box nearest the office and stairwell.
The are room will still be a recycling location, check the link to see what we are currently collecting.
Later on in the school year, watch for the opportunity to be a part of classroom projects, field trips, and special displays.
Thanks for supporting the art department. We look forward to another great year!
