  • Welcome to Art at NES! I am so excited to share this school year with you and look forward to all of the fun work we have ahead of us! If you would like to learn a little more about your art teacher, Mrs. Torrez, click the image to the right.

  • At NES, the art room is a place of exploration! This year we are back in the art room and I am looking forward to the new curriculum I have set up for our students! At the start of the year, students will have the opportunity to learn about new mediums with assigned projects, as well as curate their own art gallery! Mediums that will be explored in this part of the year are painting with watercolor and tempera paint, drawing with chalk and oil pastels, creating artwork in nature, construction or sculpture, printmaking, and fiber arts. In the second half of the school year, all students in Kindergarten through 5th grade will engage in choice-based art, or centers where they can further explore specific areas of interest in art. All artwork will be kept until the end of the year, when students will bring home an entire portfolio of work!
