Welcome to Mittelstadt Art!
Second Grade Circle Painting Mural

My name is Ruth Ackermann and I teach art to all students at Mittelstadt Elementary in Kindergarten through Fifth grades. The first weeks of school are exciting. In the art room, we are working on establishing procedures and routines to help ensure that it is a fun and productive place. We will begin our first projects fairly quickly, so please check with your student and ask them what they are doing in art. Parental involvement is key in helping children achieve and art is no exception!

We will be exploring the art elements of line, shape, color, space, texture, value and form through the use of different art materials. We will also be learning about famous artists and different world cultures. The art room is a wonderful place to allow children to problem solve creatively and expand skills needed to work collaboratively with their peers.

All grades go to art the same day every week, so please ask your student what day is their art day. As much as we try to keep neat and tidy, art can be messy, so it may be best to dress your child in older clothes on their art day. That way your child can relax and participate fully without worrying about spoiling a new outfit.

I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of my students and having a great year in art.
