Southside Garden Club has offered to sponser BNS as participants in the 2018 Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl Poster contest. Students in grades 3-5 have been working on posters to share the message of Smokey the Bear or Woodsy Owl. it has been a great exercise for students to think about how to use lettering, use a iconic character, and make sure the message is clear. They have been doing a great job. Parents will be contacted if students would like to participate in the judges portion of the contest.
Hello, my name is Patti Rowland and I am the art teacher for grades K - 8 at Blacksburg New School. I feel very fortunate to be able to have each class for an hour two times a week. Teaching at Blacksburg New School gives me the opportunity to explore and create a curriculum that incorporates choice-based learning, which serves the varying processing styles of our young artists.
