My Classroom
What Makes CLPE Special: 

In the art room at CLPE, INQUIRY is an essential part of student learning. Questions are encouraged from students to learn and understand about creating ART. The IB learning model is perfect for the creative art classroom!

We focus on THINKING and CREATING.  Art in all grades consists of learning about others art, planning an idea, creating a work based on an inspiration and reflecting on our work. Art is based on the Colorado Visual Arts Standards of Observing and Learning to Comprehend, Envision and Critique to Reflect, Invent and Discover to Create, Relate and Connect to Transfer. 

Students work to IMAGINE what they can do and make it!  We work to feel confident in our work and be knowledgeable in talking about our art.

See what we're doing at Mrs. Awsumb-Conn's Art Site!

About my IB classroom...: 

To encourage student CREATIVITY and ENTHUSIASM to create projects and to discuss ideas is my theme in the art room, computer lab and in the library.  

I want students to be LIFE-LONG LEARNERS, to be INDEPENDENT in their learning and show that ENTHUSIASM every day.  That's why I agree with Albert Einstein when he said, "CREATIVITY IS INTELLIGENCE HAVING FUN!"
