MESSAGE FROM THE ART ROOM--This message is for any student who was in Art last Spring when we changed to Remote Learning after March 13, 2020.  Any artwork that was left in the room has been stored in the Art Room since March.  If you would like to pick up your artwork, come by the Art Room today to grab anything you want to keep.  Anything left in the Art Room after TODAY will be thrown away to make room for new projects.  Any Remote Learners can email Mrs. Thompson to set up an alternate pick up time.  If anyone has questions, please email Mrs. Thompson (kelseythompson@elmhurst205.org).

REFLECTIONS PROGRAM--This year's Reflections program theme is “I Matter Because…” If you are not familiar with the program, it is a statewide art competition in which students submit entries in a variety of categories - Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts. More information can be found here. (The website should be updated soon.) Given this unprecedented time we all find ourselves in, a little bit of creativity and inner exploration could be a great thing, yes?! If you agree with me, please encourage your students to participate, either by tying this year's theme, "I Matter Because," into your projects, or simply promoting and encouraging the talent that I am sure all of you witness each week in class, on Zoom and in their assignments. Entries are due by November 24th.
