EYES ON ART PRESENTATION
Paul Klee in November
In its 13th year in the Irvington School District, the PTSA’s Eyes on Art Program is excited to present in November, German Abstract Artist Paul Klee and in February, American Realist Painter Edward Hopper.
The parent volunteers in this program are trained to provide biographical and historical information, instruct the children about the elements of art and analyze with the children how artists use these elements of art in their paintings to convey a message.
In conjunction with the presentation, the children also do an art project inspired by the particular artist. The children are given a bookmark with images of the paintings they analyze.
Please visit: http://www.irvingtonnyptsa.org/eyes-on-art.html so you can share the artist's biographical information and a word search with your children. Also provided is a list of current art exhibitions in the New York Metro area.
For more information about this program, you may contact Robin Price Powell, Director, Eyes on Art, at: email@example.com.
DOWS LANE BOOK FAIR
The Dows Lane Book Fair is just around the corner. Students will visit the fair with their classes and family members are invited to attend.
A class visit schedule will be sent out through the PTSA weekly and your class parents as soon as it's complete.
For families with young children, there will be a special Pre-School event on Tuesday, November 15th from 12:30-1:00pm. Principal Deborah Mariniello will be on hand to read some of her favorite books to the children.
Volunteers are needed to help make the Book Fair a success, so please sign up to volunteer: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0A4DADA92DAB9-dows1
