Fall into Art!

Posted: October 20th, 2010 by Rosemary Polizotto

The art studio at Phippsburg Elementary School has had an awesome start to the school year.  We have already jumped into painting, collage, printmaking and drawing projects.  Several classes are learning about the art and traditions of the Days of the Dead festival and others are using autumn as an inspiration for artwork.  Look for images to be posted soon.

This year art classes are on Tuesday mornings and all day Friday.  Please do not send your student(s) in their best clothes on art days!  We have art shirts available to wear, but paint and ink has a sneaky way of getting around and under the art shirt.  All the materials we use in art are washable and non-toxic.

Here is the schedule:

Tuesday: Grade 3, Grade 5 (Mrs. Snell), and Special Projects

Friday: Grade 4, Grade 5 (Mr. Kovacs), Kindergarten, Grade 2 and Grade 1.

I look forward to sharing Phippsburg Elementary art with you this year!

April 1, 2010 is the date for the RSU #1 Art Show at the Fisher-Mitchell School in Bath, Maine.  The time is 5-7 PM.  Parking is limited at the Fisher-Mitchell School, so we have arranged to have the trolley give free rides from Morse High School to Fisher-Mitchell.  All students in grades K-6 and select works from grade 8-12 will be displayed at the show.  Please join us in celebrating the artistic talents of students in RSU #1!

Phippsburg Artists in the News!

Posted: January 4th, 2010 by Rosemary Polizotto

Art is alive and thriving in Phippsburg! Current students and former students have recently been featured in the Times Record. Isabel Doran, grade 5, and former students Ellin Hale (Morse High School) and Michelle Campbell (UMF) were runners up in a photography contest. In the Christmas Eve edition of the Times Record, Nate Ewald, grade 3, Angel Moore, grade 5, and Alexis Wyman, grade 6, had their drawings based on the theme “The Spirit of the Holidays” chosen to be in the local advertising section. Congratulations to all our artists!
