Welcome to the AHES Visual Art Program!

Welcome back to the Art Program! I'm excited to create a variety of fun artworks with you all this year.

Grades 4 to 6 have Google Classrooms through which I will share helpful links and images that pertain to what we are learning; these spaces will also be where I post works of art you have made outside of Art class! Codes are below.

*Your child will need a smock for Art Class

I recommend that all students in grades K through 6 keep smocks at school to protect their clothing—but there’s no need to go out and make a purchase! Any oversizedshort-sleeved shirt will do.

*Donating materials to the Art Room

Many thanks to all of you who donated essential supplies last year! A big thank-you also to those of you who have generously given all kinds of supplies to my classroom over the years.

If you are interested in donating specific items to our Art Program, please check out my Amazon Classroom Wishlist via the PTO website.

I can always use the following: disinfecting wipes, hand wipes, and child-appropriate magazines. 

*Parent volunteers

I have always been very lucky to have amazing parent volunteers who have helped to prepare our Spring Art show each June.

If you are interested in helping out this year, please email me.  I also welcome any parents who are artists to come in and share their talents with the students!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 732-291-2020 x1020, or [email protected]

Thank you!
