Welcome to Stinsons Art Studio
My name is Mrs. Block and this is my 18th year teaching in the Northwest Local District. I am your Media Specialist and Art teacher. I love reading and creating. This year I am going to mix traditional learning and student-choice learning. I believe young artists have things that they want to create and I have things that I want to share. It will be the perfect blend of learning about famous artists and art techniques for the young artists to experiment with this information to create their unique works of art.
What is new this year....
I will be creating centers for students to create their student-choice projects that will be kept in their sketchbooks. These centers will allow the student to experiment with the different techniques I will be teaching them. We will have several teacher-directed traditional projects as well.
I am pleased to announce that all the students will have their own electronic art portfolio through Artsonia. It is a FREE site where I will post their finished art work, send newsletters and progress reports. All this communication will come to you through your email so don't forget to sign up. I will be sending home your Childs unique screen name and password. You will need to log into Artsonia Parents login with this information and then confirm this acceptance in an email Artsonia will send you. Remember this is for you to receive your child's artwork pictures, access their e-portfolio, and stay up-to-date with the artroom events. If you have done this in previous years at Stinson you will not have to do it this year.

Please remember to save and have your children bring in your Box Tops to the Stinson art room. Box Tops money funds all our art supplies; painting canvases, acrylic paints, brushes, tempera paints, printmaking supplies, 10 reams of drawing paper, drawing supplies, reams of colored construction paper, glue guns, fancy scissors, clay, glazes, papier mache paste, etc.... The more box tops collected at Stinson the more art materials we can afford. Last year I was able to purchase canvases for all 5th graders to paint an acrylic "Rainbow Bird". I would like to continue a canvas painting project with the 5th graders every year.
Thank-you! I appreciate all your support to our arts program and our schools online gallery.
