Welcome Bridge Students 2014-2015 School Year

Welcome Back everyone!  I can't believe the summer is coming to a close.  I look forward to hearing about everyones summer adventures.  I wanted to start the year by introducing you to my blog
Here I will post pictures to share our creative adventures in the classroom and community as well as fun announcements!
Our first Project Personal Sketchbooks!

Colored Pencil Still Life

Class  Critique
To begin we need supplies!  I have set up online ordering of supplies through Dick Blick Art supplies. If you are a new student please order the entire list. If you are a returning student only order what you need to replenish. If you have oil pastels, prismacolor colored pencils or a portfolio from a previous years with me you do not need to repurchase them.  All students will need to purchase the Koi watercolor half pans and the Rembrant half stick chalk pastels.  (These are the pastels I use in class with no scary warnings on them.)  Do not worry about back ordered items.  Order them and they will be shipped to you later.  Everyone will need to get new ebony pencils, erasers, and pens.  Ordering is easy! Click on the following link
Click on registries and lists in the upper right of the tool bar, scroll down and select Blick U lists.
In the next field select Tennessee as your state, Studio Bloom as your school and my lists will appear at the bottom of the screen.  Example:  Intro to Art grades 5th-8th The Bridge Homeschool Group and my name Gwendolyn English.  Click on the list and purchase the supplies you need.  Please no substitutions!  These are what we need. Each student needs to have theirs supplies in class August 26th or 28th.  That gives students three weeks and Dick Blick is fast and very well priced!  Our first project is a personal sketchbook for use in and out of class all year!  I look forward to seeing everyone August 12th and 14th!
