Welcome to the NES Art Studio!
Every child is an artist, and all students are capable of learning and creating. In the art room, students will explore new materials and techniques, collaborate with their classmates, develop creative problem-solving skills, and become confident, persistent, reflective, enthusiastic art-makers!
Some types of art we will explore this year might include: drawing and painting, collage, printmaking, clay, sculpture, fibers, and mixed media (which just means using several different materials in one project). We will use "traditional" art materials, as well as some unexpected or recycled materials. We will create art that looks like things we see in the world and in our imaginations, and art that might not really look like anything at all!
Want to learn more about our art program? Come to the November PTNO meeting where Ms. Boonshoft will share a presentation (and a tour of our new art studio!) with the community. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 12, at 6:30 PM in the NES Library.
In our art studio, we will always...
Take care of ourselves. (Be safe. Be patient with yourself. Always do your best work.)
Take care of each other. (Be safe. Treat classmates and teachers with kindness. Share and help.)
Take care of our classroom and materials. (Use all materials safely and appropriately. Clean up classroom and materials every day.)

Ms. Katie Boonshoft
This is my eighth year teaching art, and my third year at Northfield Elementary School. Before moving to Vermont in June 2017, I taught art in New York and Ohio. I studied Art at SUNY Buffalo and Art Education at Teachers College Columbia University. I just started working toward a second Master's degree at UVM in Educational Leadership. I grew up in New York, just outside of the city. Now I live in Montpelier with my husband Mark who is a history professor right down the road at Norwich University. I love making art (mainly photography, drawing, collage, and printmaking). I also love yoga, music, and pizza!
