Welcome to visual art class at Mann elementary! My name is Mrs. Chrisco and this is my 7th year teaching at Mann and my 12th year teaching art. I received my BA in Art Education from University of Kentucky and my MA in Art Education from Boston University. Please check out our Artsonia page to see all the wonderful art work being created this year. If you haven't signed up for an account please do so and if you are new to Mann this year I will need a signed permission form in order upload your students' work to the site (which I have in the art room). I'm looking forward to a very creative school year!
- FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM!!! THE MANN ART ROOM HAS THEIR OWN INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT. I FREQUENTLY POST PICTURES OF AWESOME ARTWORK MADE BY SOME OF THE MOST CREATIVE KIDS I KNOW. MannArtRoom is our username. Look us up!!
If you have a 4th or 5th grade student make sure you ask them about the new cool things we are doing in art this year! I've decided that for the upper grades we are going to try out a studio atmosphere while still learning. They will have their choice of subject matter, materials and media to work with so that they can find their strength and contiue to develop it. This style of teaching is called TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) and I encourage you, as parents, to check out the following link and talk to your students about it. So far it has been successful and I hope the kiddos are enjoying it as much as I am! http://teachingforartisticbehavior.org/
