The Art department would like to welcome back all NMES students and families to another great year. We are excited to begin projects with students that incorporate a variety of art materials and art vocabulary terms. In addition to fabulous artworks, the art department is thrilled to announce a variety of art programs and activities that students will be participating in this year.
Things to Look Forward To
- Art Clubs: The art department will once again be holding two art clubs this year for students in grades 2-5, one in the fall and one in the spring. More information will be sent out soon. - Art Field Trip: 5th grade artists will once again be going to the Walter's Art Museum in Baltimore MD to view and discuss many wonderful artworks and artists from around the world. For more information about this museum please check out: www.thewalters.org - Artist in Residence: 4th grade artists will be working with Pam Negrin, an embroidery, applique, and quilting artist, to create an instillation artwork that will hang in NMES.
- Art Show: We will be holding out 5th annual NMES Art Show on Thursday, May 5th, 2016 from 6-8pm in the gym. We will once again be working with the company Artome, who frame and hang up every students' artwork. Once again, artworks in frames can be bought for $30, with a portion of the money coming back to support the art program at NMES. For more information please click HERE
