Granby Elementary


News From Mrs. La Plante
 
Hello all! 
This school year our artists will be working on a variety of projects that are based on
The New York State Standards for Art Education and the Fulton City School District K-6 Art Curriculum.

            My personal philosophy is that creating art is about the journey of creation.  We focus mainly on the progression and understanding of the making art.  Due to this fact, I have each of our artists create a yearlong artist portfolio.  An artist portfolio is a collection of all the things we have accomplished together throughout the school year. At the end of the year we look through this portfolio together and see how far we have come in our learning and comprehension of the different art concepts we have put into practice. 
After our assessment we then send the portfolio home in June, nicely stapled so that our masterpieces will not be harmed. 
            I am looking forward to all the fun we will be having this year and I cannot wait to see what wonderful things our artists will create!
