If you are new to this website, WELCOME!!! This is my 8th year at Sallie Jones, but thirteenth year of teaching art in Charlotte County! I first taught at Port Charlotte Middle, then Peace River Elementary until I took a three year leave when my (now 5th grader!) Daphne was born. My husband Danny and I have lived here all our lives (both CHS alum!) aside from the time I spent at UCF obtainting my B.S. in Art Ed.
I hope you have been continuing to let your imaginiation run wild this new school year! Check out the photo gallery titled "free time art" to see some of the photos your peers have sent in (along with my Daphne (10) and Ben (4) with their friends having fun at home).
The last Art Splash – Art @ Home activities I posted in May focussed on a review of the principles of design. These require/required adult supervision but would really make a fun family project. I have posted several examples in the "string and pour paint" photo gallery, but I do hope you will send me some pictures of your familiy with their art!
I hope you had the chance to view my video that included the 5 KCB winners for the 2021 calendar that is still posted. Those Keep Charlotte Beautiful calendards featuring SJE artists will be on sale (during art) for a $3 donation. In other exciting news, Lina Maslo’s (the author/illustrator we interviewed about her first book Free as Bird) SECOND book was released the 1st week of MAY!!!!!! If you missed the interview, there are a few screenshots of Lina and I's google meet in the "audobon ..." photo gallery. PLEASE check out this exciting video including her two daughters for more information about the Through the Wardrobe:
I look forward to seeing you all in art class or your photos in my inbox or through REMIND or my email in the meantime!
