Welcome to Ms. Visvader's Art Page!

At Saint John's Academy, students will have the opportunity to use their creativity, problem solve, and express their emotions, in producing original works of art. Through these works of art, students will learn the sensory elements and formal principles of art and design.

Students will explore and learn to create with the tool and materials that artists use to
sculpt, sew, draw, paint, print, and create computer graphics. For each project, students
will imagine possibilities, explore alternatives, and reflect on their own as well as
 investigate others work. 

Some materials will include:

Some artists that we study:

 Please be aware that we do get messy sometimes in the art room! Please send your child with a smock to keep inside their locker. An old apron, or even a large old t-shrt is perfect. While working in the art room we try to be as careful as possible, unfortunately accidents do happen.
