If you’ve stopped by the RPE Art Blog lately, you’ve noticed a few slight changes. 🙂 Of course, once the school year starts, we’ll get information to families through the newsletter and such, but in case you have stumbled upon the blog, here are some NEWBIES to our blog!
1. RPE’s Google Map of Art
Over to the right, you’ll see a few clickable icons. RPE’s Google Map of Art takes you to a Google Map that will hopefully be adorned with photographs of family visits to art around the world. Check it out and submit your photos today!!
2. Monthly Art Challenge
As a fun way to get students thinking creatively outside of art class, we are going to try out the Monthly Art Challenge. Students can try these activities and get rewarded for them at school!
3. Updated Art Links
This list of interactive and educational Art sites has been a favorite of students for many years, but now it looks a little different! Simply click on the Art Links icon, then click “Add this page” when you see the Symbaloo preview (a bunch of square image links). Clicking add this page will allow you to view the entire Art Link Symbaloo. (Basically, it is a prettier than a list of links.)
4. Aweseome Art Apps- Coming Soon!
5. Artsonia- Coming Soon!
As years previous, I hope to upload student work to this site. Check it out! You can have fan clubs, build a portfolio, comment on student work, and purchase items that display your work!
6. Visual Arts Standards
If you’ve never checked these out, I encourage you to do so. This year, literacy standards have been added to the Fine Arts!
