End-of-the-Year Art Portfolios
In May or June, portfolios will be made by each student. The National and New York State Standards in the Visual Arts state that students will prepare a collection of their artwork for a portfolio. The portfolios will be used to take home all the artwork at once. Keeping the artwork at school will help in the large selection of work needed for art shows and end the damage that occurs when work is taken home in backpacks and on the bus during the year. Included with the artwork will be an information sheet so you and your child may review all that he or she learned in art throughout the year!
