Welcome Artists!

Welcome to the art classroom blog! Where creativity is encouraged and being yourself is highly recommended. Together we will learn to respect ourselves and our classmates; we will learn to reflect upon our own artworks and the artworks of others; and we will learn to collaborate with our own thoughts and ideas as well as those of our peers. 

Get ready for a fun and exciting ride. This class will be hands on, minds on, and keep you on your artistic toes. We will be covering a wide variety of artists in reference to our lesson plans. Do not worry if you have had little experience with art, that is what this class is for. I am encouraging you all to become engaged and active in your own learning, as well as assisting your classmates in theirs. As stated above, this class is about respect, reflection, and collaboration. This blog will serve as our classroom overview each week. I hope to post about our discussions, the artists we are covering, and the artworks you are all creating. I feel it is very important to share the work that each of your put into our class, and so this blog will do just that.

When you have time, check out our classroom website, Ms. Mezger's Art Experience, for further learning materials and tools. Between this blog and the website you should always be aware of what is going on in our classroom

This year is going to be great! I look forward to creating with all of you.
