The Morse Art Studio's Weblog

Just another weblog

Welcome back! September 14, 2009

Filed under: news — alaplante @ 9:28 am

The new school year is off to a good start so far!  Some information for parents:

  • If you are interested in being a parent volunteer with the Morse Arts Committee, please contact me either through email, or a visit to the Art Studio.  We will be having a meeting in the next couple weeks to plan some events for the school year.  Volunteer opportunities include:  hanging up and taking down art throughout Central Square for our monthly Morse Art in the Community exhibits; fundraising; organizing a school wide art show; organizing our participation in Cambridge Open Studios; and classroom volunteering.
  • If you are a kindergarten parent, I am looking for Art Studio Parents.  This would be a 45 minute commitment every Friday during your student’s art class.  This job can be shared between 2 or 3 parents, but it would be great to have a parent for each of the 4 classes.  Paraprofessionals do not stay with the class during Art, and kindergartners really do benefit from 2 adults in the room.
  • Please take note of which day your child has art class.  Do not send them to school in brand new clothes!  Students have a tendency to get messy in the art studio, and I do not provide smocks.
  • I’m pleased to introduce Ms. Jan Chang, who will be my student teacher for the first 8 weeks of school.  She is a graduate student at Boston University’s College of Fine Arts.

I will be at the K-5 Open House this Thursday, but not  Tuesday’s 6-8 Open House.  I can answer any other questions at that time.
