What is love?
Hello Tenafly students, parents, guardians, and fellow staff members! Over the next several weeks, the students at Smith will be diving into one very important and global idea. "Love" will be at the forefront of our art curriculum endeavors.
Each grade will take part in creating a project that represents love and its many forms. Some of the projects will include learning about artist Jim Dine and his literal use of hearts as subject matter and abstract popsicle stick love sculptures using the word "love" Another grade will also create positive and negative space designs using the heart shape.
Together, as a school, the students have shown their love of community by creating a large heart on our gym floor made up of soup cans. The cans were donated to the Englewood C.F.A. (Center for food action) back in November. Excellent work, Smith!
stARTing off the year!
Hello everyone. I am proud to say that the students at Smith have really stARTed off the year! Each class is being introduced to the art room rules: Act Appropriately, Respect, and Try! Our theme this month at Smith is also Responsibility. How can you be responsible in the art room?
Each student should bring in a smock or old shirt to protect clothing when materials get messy. October 1st is an optimal time to have smocks in and ready for use. With limited space to store each student's smock in the art room, I will ask that smocks be stored in homeroom classes at the discretion of the homeroom teacher.
Though there are no requirements as far as art materials for our students,
collected recycled materials throughout the year will be very helpful to be used in projects.
The following are greatly appreciated and can be donated at any time throughout the year.
Thank you for the continued support!
