6th Grade Art at MNMS
HELLO FELLOW ARTISTS!
HELLO THERE, 6TH GRADERS AND 6TH GRADE PARENTS/FAMILIES/FANS!
Welcome to MNMS 6th Grade ART!
Get ready to learn while I learn- what a weird but wonderful year we are going to have together!
I am very happy to be back in school to see students and to interact with everyone.
As we get more info you'll notice less visiting to this website and more visiting in Canvas,
where you'll find assignments, updates and announcements.
Right now please check the MNMS main page for dates and for supplies as I will be
following those and using the supplies listed for the most part.
The first day you'll need your brain for sure!
Keep scrolling down to get to some notes for families...

Things every Family should know for 6th grade Art:
6th grade Art is in a trimester schedule. 1st trimester grades will show up in 2nd quarter marking period, 2nd trimester in 3rd marking period and 3rd trimester in 4th marking period. You can ALWAYS check CANVAS to see what the grades are and which assignments are still due.
For information about assignments, you can check this website, although it will not be as updated as your child's own Canvas account.
Every 6th grader will also have an online portfolio that they are responsible for curating. Ask them to show it to you (after the first or second week of class).
Everyone should check their email for a message from me near the early end of the trimester, I will email students (and cc parents/guardians) if there are projects that are not being turned in. Have your child do a search for Nelson or jmn11 in their scasd email.
My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please contact me if your child is not letting you get enough info :)
Trimester 2 ends on March 5th but assignments can still be submitted by March 19th
But wait, there's more....
Articulated Puppets, fun and funky especially when they're cut out and assembled
there is a global movment to call attention to the temperatures of the Earth's cities with a knitting project. We used weaving instead to create our designs. Reds to orange were warmer temperatures, greens to blues were cooler.
. . .It's March!, it is Youth Art Month, go celebrate your artist!
Hang some of their fabulous art in your home or office! Contact me for details!
