It's time to bring in T-shirts for screen printing and class color tie dye. (Grades K-2 shirts are provided by their teachers). As the students get older, they start to have preferences in size and style, so we ask that they come from home for the upper elementary and middle school classes. These upper level grades will have the opportunity to learn about the screen printing process and print their own shirt! The following week students will tie dye using their class color.
Things to keep in mind with shirt selection:
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.
