Chinese New Year, Year of the Red Monkey.
I will be rolling out the “new” National Coalition for Core Arts Standards replacing NY state standards for Visual Arts. This just means my focus will be on the following:
- Creating: conceiving and developing new artistic ideas and work.
- Presenting: interpreting and sharing artistic work.
- Responding: understanding and evaluating how the arts convey meaning.
- Connecting: relating artistic ideas and work with personal meaning and external context.
To learn more, visit and I will still follow the NY state skill learning objectives for each grade level, which is the same. Please let me know if you did not receive 1-5th grade HR poster. We are now working on self-portraits, fun!
