Art News

I would like to welcome all of my students and parents to a new year in art at Bowling Green Elementary. We are starting our year off with some exciting news. This year, students will be participating in a project through a company called “Original Works.” This project allows students to draw a picture and have it printed on various products. Parents will be able to order their child’s original art work on many items, including tote bags, coffee mugs, computer mouse pads, and much more! We will first work on out art projects for about a month. You will be receiving order packets sometime in October, explaining all of the details. The packet will also contain a price list. The students are already excited and working hard to come up with an original masterpiece. Please keep your ears open for information regarding this project. I know you’ll want to purchase personal creations by your child so that you can cherish the lifelong memories.

Also, all Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade students are required to wear art shirts to protect their clothing in art. Please make sure they all have one by next week. You do not have to purchase anything new; any old shirt will do. I would like to remind you not to send in shirts that are extremely large on the student because they tend to snag onto other things and knock them over. Third thru Fifth Graders are not required to wear an art shirt; it is their choice. Students will be required to participate in art whether they have on art shirts or not. I strive to keep them as clean as possible.

We’re looking forward to an exciting year. Hope you are too.

“Tis The Season!”

The winter season is upon us, and so is the Christmas Spirit. The Annual Holiday Art Show will be held on Saturday, December 12, 2015, in Bowling Green. The Annual Christmas Parade is also held the same day, so you will get a double treat. I will inform you if your child has art on display in the art show. You will be receiving more details regarding the place and time of the art show as soon as I receive them. Thank you…Fa la la la la, la la, la la!

We’re Off to a Great Start!

Dear Parents:

The students at BGE are off to a great start in art. Everyone is working hard and displaying their creativity. I look forward to another fantastic year. Just a reminder, Pre-K, Kindergarten and First grade students should wear an old shirt to art to protect their clothing. In grades three thru five, it is up to the student. We will try to be as clean as possible. I will keep you informed of upcoming events throughout the year. Please feel free to contact me through my school email address (jdudley@ccps.us) or on the school phone number (804-596-2391) if you have any concerns or suggestions. Thank you.
