Tip of the day:

As art teachers, Mr. Tippit and Ms. Gardner are often asked what can a parent do to help encourage a student who in interested in art. Here are some ideas:
         1) Give them a sketchbook and encourage them to draw and write in it everyday.
          2) Let your child explore a variety of art materials such as different pens, different papers, sculpture, pastels, paints, etc..
           3) Give them "how to draw" books and videos. Those types of things teach students how to see the world as basic shapes.
          4) Keep their artwork organized and safe. You might just need to include samples of their art when applying for the Governor's school or the Art Scholars program.
