What a grrreat first week back! I enjoyed getting reaquainted with everyone and meeting some new Arp Tigers! Our 1st assignment was to create a painting giving me an insight to something you did over the summer break. It was fun and insightful to listen to how much fun you and your families had over your vacation. Many of you went to Galveston, South Padre, Six Flags, The Villages, Hurricane Harbor, and Sea World. Others had fun with friends playing hide-and-go-seek, going fishing, playing video games, jumping on the trampoline, and going to see the Texas Rangers play some good 'ol baseball. These and many more adventures were demonstrated through your paintings. This assignment was successful giving me a great opportunity to welcome each of you back. As we move forward, please remember to pay $5 towards the 2010-2011 Art Class. Next week, we will learn about Labor Day by creating different crafts to celebrate our 1st holiday of the school year! Check back periodically to see pictures taking during class time. Thanks for a super 1st week of school!
