Hello from the Art Room!  
My name is Christine Lakatos and I am so excited to be your child’s art teacher. 2016-17 will mark my 20th year teaching art, so to some of you I am a familiar face. I am looking forward to introducing your child to a variety of art materials, styles, histories, and cultures.
Throughout the school year, student work will be exhibited in the hallways at school, and with your permission, at various places in the community. Each student will have two works of art on display in the school art show in the spring. All work will be returned at the end of the school year.
All students K-4 meet weekly for 45 minutes. 5th/6th graders meet weekly for 50 minutes. You may wish to send in a paint shirt with your child to protect their clothing from our creative messes. Oversized button up or t-shirts work best. Shirts should be labeled with your child’s name and placed in a labeled zip loc bag so they can be stored in each student’s homeroom.
I often get asked what kinds of things are needed for the art room. We are currently collecting the following items:  newspaper, egg cartons, cardboard tubes, plastic containers with lids, and brown paper grocery bags. We are also always in need of zip loc bags, foil, plastic wrap, wax paper, glue sticks, baby wipes and playdoh (homemade playdoh works great too).
I am proud to announce that both Hayes and Webster Elementary are recognized as a GREEN SCHOOLS! Thank you for taking the time to send in your recyclable items including empty Caprisuns or Honest Kids juice boxes, Entenmann’s Little Bites wrappers, and dried up markers (any kind). We will continue to collect these items and new this year we will be recycling used batteries.
If you are interested in volunteering, there are many different ways to support our art room. Preparing for our student show is a tremendous task that we prepare all year for it. Works of art must be matted (some of which can be taken home to do) and we also need volunteers to help set up the art show.
