  • I hope this note finds everyone well!

    A few things...

    * Conferences are next Monday and Tuesday! We look forward to seeing all of you for visits regarding your student. If you have not yet made a scheduled time with your child's teacher, please reach out to them tomorrow (Friday) to schedule. We would LOVE to have 100% of students accounted for at a conference!

    * Food Pantry OPEN will take place RIGHT outside of the studio tomorrow so bundle up and get some great food!

    * Remember, due to conferences and Thanksgiving, there is no school for kids next week. I hope the week is wonderful for you and your family!

    Vestal Peace!,

    November Art Spotlight

    Hello Vestal Community,

    We have been doing some new things in Art these past few weeks.

    Kindergarten and 1st Grade are working on simple landscapes with trees. We discussed tints (adding white to a color), as well as perspective and line.

    3rd, 4th, and 5th Grades have been doing observational sketches to sharpen their “artists' eyes”: artists notice shapes, shadows and light, textures, and many details that aren’t obvious unless they activate those artists' eyes! We are extending our observational drawing skills by practicing simple still lifes, which brings the extra challenge of noticing the relationships between objects in space. I am reminding all students that practice makes progress; it’s hard to do these things at first, but we are practicing to improve our skills.

    I hope everyone has a restful break next week, and I look forward to seeing everyone afterward!

    ~Ms. Breaux
