Our staff has been planning our annual Art Adventure Week at SoMo - January 23-27 - it will be here before we know it! This is always a very exciting week for our students, and we are creating a memorable experience for our entire school community. Teachers will be conducting their own activities in the classroom, but here are the school-wide events:
Monday, January 23 – Ane Rovetta, artist and storyteller, will work lead school-wide, interactive assemblies to kick off the week.
Tuesday, January 24 – Classes will rotate through t-shirt silk screening centers. Silk screening will take place all day in our quad. All students will make a t-shirt to wear to school on Friday, our Art Rotation Day.
Wednesday, January 25 – Ane Rovetta will be back to work with students by grade-level. She will tell marine life stories and facilitate chalk-drawing experiences as a form of storytelling.
Thursday, January 26 – This is Visual Thinking Strategies Day! Students will participate in facilitated critical-thinking discussions about various art pieces in their classrooms.
Ane Rovetta will also return to lead more grade-level workshops!
Friday, January 27 – THIS IS THE BIG DAY! Students will be in mixed-age groups (K-6). Groups will rotate through three classrooms to learn about different artists (Picasso, Monet, Mondrian, etc.) and/or mediums (pastels, mosaic, collage, watercolor, clay sculpture, etc). A project is completed in each class in the style of the artist and/or using specific techniques and mediums. This rotation will take all day.
ALL STUDENTS NEED TO WEAR THEIR ART ADVENTURE SHIRTS ON THIS DAY! Also, your child should wear clothes than can get messy – they will be painting, using chalk, working with clay, etc.
It's registration time! Please visit our office between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm to complete and submit registration paperwork. Paperwork is available in our school office or you can access it by clicking here.
Tours of our school are available. Please contact our office at (707) 765-4305 to schedule a tour.
Please join us at our SoMo Information Night in our Lipscomb Library on Thursday, January 19 at 6:00 pm to learn more about our school. Teachers and parents will share highlights of our whole-school experience from kindergarten through sixth grade including curriculum, our charter focus, and community events. Our program will last a little over an hour.
If you have any questions about the registration process and/or our school, please contact our office at (707) 765-4305.
