​​​​ ​ART

The art room is an exciting place to be when children are creating! We learn many thing during art class at Rolling Hills Elementary School. Students learn the elements and principles of design, in addition to relevant art history, and make cross-curricular connections from their art projects to classroom learning experiences. Colorado Art Standards are all covered completely: observe and learn to comprehend, envision and critique to reflect, invent and discover to create, relate and connect to transfer. In grades 1-5, students create online digital art portfolios to display their work, reflect on their own art, and give positive feedback to other students on their projects, as well. We combine art and technology whenever possible to enhance student learning. In addition, students work with a variety of medium in the art room; incorporating clay, painting, sculpture and drawing basics, while covering varied subject matters. The art room is an exciting place of exploration, learning, creating and having fun!

 Please visit our school's art website! There is information for parents, photos of the projects we are working on, and fun activities and art website links for kids.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have.

I’m looking forward to having your child in Music class this year!  Students will be playing handbells, belleplates, melody bells, recorders, pre-recorders, tonebars, and our classroom percussion instruments as well as our Kidstix Stations.  They’ll be investigating rhythm, melody, jazz, the music of Asia, dance, composing, learning to read and play music, singing, and listening/moving to a wide variety of music genres. The curriculum is based on our Colorado state standards for music:

 

        Expression of Music

        Aesthetic Valuation of Music

 

I welcome your interest and invite you to visit Music class anytime!
