Hello! My name is Melissa Mondanaro, and I teach Art and Gifted and Talented Art at Collins, Hillside, and Mount Pleasant Elementary schools! Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!
“YOU ARE A MASTERPIECE!"
I am so excited to be teaching you this year for art! We will be creating wonderful artworks that explore different materials, concepts, and techniques. We will also be looking at famous artworks and artists, talking about art, and sharing new ideas! My main goal is to inspire you to express yourself, create, and have fun throughout the year!
What to expect...
I expect you to try. Try painting in a different way. Try drawing something new. You may be surprised what you create! I truly believe that everyone can be an artist. You just need to try.
What you need....
You do not need any art supplies! All you need is a smock, or an old shirt that can be used as a smock. Please make sure whichever smock you choose, covers a majority of your clothes, (It tends to get messy!)
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
"Every child is an artist!"
