We are forming Odyssey of the Mind teams at RMAE. Please go to www.odysseyofthemind.com to learn more, or contact me for information.
I have scheduled a field trip to the Denver Art Museum to see the Van Gogh exhibit on January 8. Look for field trip permission slips in November.
Please bring to art: $3.00 for a sketchbook, an eraser, an ultra-fine point black sharpie, and an optional handheld pencil sharpener.
You should have received an email from Artsonia, the online art gallery Artsonia.com asking for permission to display your students artwork online.
