Art

Welcome to the York Township Elementary School Art Room 

 My name is Mrs. Markey and I will be your child’s art teacher this year. I am so excited to work with your child this year!  I look forward to  year of creative ideas and the joy of seeing new discoveries made by the children every day.  My goals in art class are for all students to experience making art, learning problem-solving skills, and trying new and different ways of learning.  My philosophy in art class is that truly great artwork is done when students try to do their best. I concentrate on effort, learning skills, and the joy of creating, rather than art ability in the elementary grades.  Our art curriculum teaches students art history, famous artists, and the elements of art , creativity and skills needed for problem solving.  In the art room the children have hands-on lessons making drawings, paintings, sculptures, weaving, sewing puppets and many more with a wide variety of materials.

I will see your child for 45 minutes once a week for art.  Most of the projects we make will be kept for the art show in May.  This is an event you don’t want to miss.  All children will have several pieces of art displayed throughout the entire school.   You will also find the children’s artwork decorating the school all year long.
