    Hello students! I hope everyone is well and safe. Since we have moved to online school for the near future, I am listing several fun websites below where you can be creative and continue to learn principles and elements of art.  The digital art can be selected and colored on your Andriod or Apple phone or tablet. Digital art can also be done on your Mac or PC computer. You will be able to email your online artwork to me or take photos of hand drawn artwork and email to me at mary.tomlin@spls.org. 

    Assignments will take you one (1) hour each week to complete. The assignments for Pre-K and Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade are due on Wednesday by 4:00 pm.  Assignments for 3rd through 6th grade will be due on each Friday by 4:00 pm.  Click on the Current Assignments tab to find out what your class assignments are each week.  The websites are also listed below in case you get some extra time and want to expand your creativity at any of these great learning adventures.

    Digital Art Websites Recommended by Scholastic

    If you love to color, you will enjoy the digital patterns at Scrap Coloring. There are many templates to choose from. The areas within the templates can be filled with either solid color or a range of patterns. The patterns can also be changed by adjusting the colors.

    You will find another fun and enjoyable digital coloring and learning site at The Color. Choose from many touchscreen templates. Experiment with many colors to create patterns using warm colors or cool colors or a rainbow of colors.  Explore your imagination and creativity.

    This is a great website but you will need a computer with a mouse because it does not work on the iPad or any touchscreen device. At Bomomo website you can experiment with endless shapes, color and design. There are many interesting tools, and the best way to discover what they can do is to simply try them. Click one of the icons at the bottom of the screen, then move and click your mouse to make a cool abstract composition. If you can't save the creation, try taking a screen grab of it.

    Another fun and educational website with lots of art exploration is Toy Theater. The art activities there include building with colored blocks, doodling, designing, animation, and a glimpse into the artworks of Picasso, Van Gogh and Georgia O'Keefe. You need to take a screen grab to save your work on this website. Then send an email to me at mary.tomlin@slps.org.

    Online Drawing Sites - Step by step drawing lessons:

    Art for Kids Hub is a fantastic directed drawing website for students from Pre-K through 6th grade.  Using pencil and paper you can draw along with the artist and a student to make drawing of current characters and everyday images.

    Harptoons is a great drawing site for students in 2nd through 6th grade.  You will draw along with pencil and paper.  You will learn to draw cartoons, make animations, and draw characters showing action.
