Have you seen the Mystery Artist bulletin board outside the art room? Maybe your child has been talking about it, or trying to solve the mystery. This is a new way to make connections and add a little extra way to reinforce art history. Here's how it works. Each month there will be an artwork displayed. Students can look for clues and have discussions about it. When they figured it out, they can fill out a paper slip, and each month there will be a drawing for a little art prize. I hope this is a fun way to support learning about art!
August featured artist was the Mono Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci.

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.
