We will still be having our school art show, just a little bit differently! My goal is to make a virtual art show with artwork you have sent me from our Google Classroom assignments or with FREE DRAW ART. I am hoping to have ONE piece of artwork for every student in our school. Suggestions for Artwork: -Appropriate for school -Colorful -Takes up full page or majority of page -Use whatever art material you like -Something you are proud of -Something you made from this year either in art or on your own -Clear picture taken of artwork close up Please upload or send me a picture of your favorite artwork that you have created so far either on Google Classroom, through email, or text by May 4th. This gives you two weeks to make something if you don't have something you are proud of already. Remember the majority of the students and their families will see the picture of your artwork! I will then make a virtual gallery and send it to everyone!

The color wheel art challenge is an activity that students can complete for fun. The challenge is to have students create a color wheel out of objects found in their homes. Kindergarten through 2nd grade is challenged to create a color wheel using primary (red, yellow, blue) and secondary (orange, green, purple) colors. Third through 5th grade is challenged to use primary, secondary, and tertiary (red orange, yellow orange, yellow green, blue green, blue violet, and red violet) colors. Red is typically at the top of the color wheel and green is usually at the bottom. You can send me a picture of the complete color wheel through Google Classroom, email, or text. I look forward to seeing all of the amazing color wheels. Click the links below for some sample images.

Some students are having difficulties sending or uploading images of their artwork from your packet assignments. Here are 3 ways you can submit artwork to me: 1. You can upload it through the assignment on the classwork tab (if I have created an assignment for your grade level). 2. You can e-mail a picture to me at 3. You or a parent can text me a picture of your artwork . Please e-mail me for my phone number. I am extending the due date for any artwork from your packet until April 3rd. Please make sure you submit a piece of artwork to me either on Google Classroom, through e-mail, or by text message. I know this is new for all of us and wanted to provide you some extra time to learn how to use Google Classroom. Keep your eyes open for a fun activity for art next week!

Good morning NJES students and families!  I started Google Classrooms for art for each grade. On there I will post anything that I also post on here but this is a great tool because on Google Classrooms students are actually able to write back to ask questions or make comments on the assignments. They are even able to communicate with each other. I already have a few students signed up for my 3-5 classrooms and I am working on trying to figure out the best way to invite K-2. If you are K-2 bare with me but if you are 3-5 you are able to join the classroom already.  Here is how to join:  You can either go to the website for Google Classroom or download the App on a device. You will use your school student email but after the @ symbol you will write and you will be asked to join the classroom. My e-mail which is just for Google Classroom purposes. If you are looking to e-mail me personally please use at this e-mail I am able to respond back. If you are unsure of your student e-mail account please let me know and I can get you that information.

?It has been brought to my attention that some 3rd graders didn't receive the artwork assignments in their packets. Attached you will find the scale project and space project that should have been sent home in your packet. I know we haven't been able to cover these two elements of art in class yet, so if you have any questions please ask. There is also a vocabulary box on the sheet if you are unsure of the terms. Scale refers to the sizing of objects in your artwork. Think: What if you were as small as a penny or larger than a house? Negative space is the empty space around an object and positive space is the object itself. You should be designing the negative space in this piece of artwork and the object will remain uncolored.

Simon Says Draw Game I was scrolling through my old maternity leave plans when I found this cute Simon Says Draw Game! It is great for all ages and a great way for families to interact with each other through art! It works the same way as Simon Says but incorporates drawing. There are a few different ways to do this that will create different products in regards to the end product or artwork. This is a great activity if your child just needs a break or as an alternative lesson to my art lessons in your packet. Happy playing!  Click the link below! SimonSaysFull.docx

It has been brought to my attention that the art assignments were not passed out in the packet for Mrs. Griffith's 3rd grade class last Friday. As for now, please pick a drawing prompt to complete until the next packet comes out or look to the art blog on the webpage. Either assignments will be accepted. Thank you and sorry for the error. Here is an image of the alternative assignment. I will make another post with the original assignments soon. To see the image click on the title for this post (Mrs. Griffith's 3rd Grade Class).

Good Afternoon, NJES! Unfortunately, I do not have a lot of parent contact information here at home. I figured I would start this blog in order to keep everyone updated the best to my abilities while we are out of school.  First, I want to start by giving all of you my contact information.  My work e-mail is and my home e-mail is Please feel free to contact me as you see fit. Another great way to communicate with me is through LiveGrades. I have sent a message on LiveGrades already to the parents who have their contact information posted.  In the packet that we sent home last week Kindergarten had some how to draw sheets, 1st and 2nd grade had two art lessons, and 3rd through 5th grade had two pages with 4 different drawing prompts. This should be plenty of work to last through several weeks due to the students only having art once a week for our school schedule. Usually, it will take a class 2-3 weeks to complete one project due to having art once a week for 45 minutes. Kindergarten: I passed out several pages of different how to draw sheets. Please have students pick one per week to practice drawing. Once the student drew the object, have them create a background composition for the object. This could be realistic or imaginary.  1st and 2nd Grade: Pick one project work on first. Please be mindful that you do not have to complete the project in one day. I suggest working on the project for 45 minutes and then saving the rest for the next week. Please use whatever coloring materials you have available.  3rd-5th Grade: You should have been given 2 papers with 4 different writing prompts. Follow the instructions on the papers. Pick one drawing prompt to work on first. Please make sure you are filling up the entire page with your drawing. You should be able to complete one drawing prompt in either 1 or 2 45 minute sessions. If you finish a drawing prompt from both pages, pick a different drawing prompt on either page. I am looking forward to see what different ideas all of you come up with!  I will be posting on this blog a few times a week! The next blog will include some different online tools you can use to incorporate some art history into your art block. I will also try to include some great online resources for art as well.  Message to the students:  I hope all of you know how much you mean to us here at NJES! I hope you are staying safe (by washing your hands) and enjoying this time with your families and loved ones. I am so excited to come back to school and create art with you again!  I miss you!!!
