    Art Shows and Fundraiser:

    Most student art will be kept at school in a portfolio- I will put up some for various art shows throughout the school year. All of the art projects will be returned to each student, to take home, by the end of the year.  

    This year CMS will also be participating in an online program called Artsonia. You should be receiving an email about this- please make sure to give us permission online to submit and show your child’s artwork throughout the semester! If you do not want your child to participate please let me know and put it on the form sent to you by email. If you do not get an email about it, let me know, and make sure to update your email address on Parent Portal. This program will serve many purposes for our art program:

    1. It acts as a student art gallery so you can see everything your child is working on throughout the semester! You can even make comments on the artwork for your child to read!

    2. Students will reflect on their own artwork, and create artist statements.

    3. Fundraiser!!! On the website- at any point in the year- you can order your child’s artwork(s) printed on to various items (hats, t-shirts, coffee mugs, etc). This is a great way for us to earn money to go straight towards our art program, and these also make great gifts! In previous years CMS participated in similar fundraiser programs- but this one allows us to do much more than just fundraising!
