Welcome to the Art Room!
“Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist when he grows up.” –Pablo Picasso
Dear Student Artist's Parents & Guardians,
My name is Mrs. Ferrone and I am so happy to be your child’s art teacher! I have over 18 years of experience as a classroom teacher in the elementary grades. I was able to follow my dream five years ago when I left the regular education classroom for the Art classroom. I am passionate about art education and the joy I believe it brings to us all. I look forward to a rewarding and very productive school year!
My goals for my Student Artists…
In my Elementary Art classroom, students will receive a foundation in the elements and principles of design through a mixture of art making techniques and varied lessons that are inspired by artists and art history. I will provide my students with a large variety of materials to experiment with as they learn basic art skills, techniques and styles. Each and every artist will be encouraged to grow and blossom as a creative individual. Throughout the year students’ work will be showcased, celebrated and displayed throughout our school, on this website, and in our classroom. At the start of the year, I shared with students my classroom expectations. I believe parent-teacher communication is the key to promoting an educational climate that is conductive to learning. Please feel free to contact me if there are any questions or situations that may arise.
I look forward to working with your child in the art classroom!
