Miss Susie Bird

Mrs. Tolley is our art teacher.  She comes up with some pretty fantastic art projects.  She works with every student in the school, teaching them techniques, vocabulary, forms of art and much more.  Thanks for all your hard work!

On the weekend, Mrs. Tolley loves to watch a  movie or read a book.  She loves to go out and hike, but she also loves spending a weekend watching college football.  (Ask Mrs. Tolley who her favorite teams are!)

She would choose to have lunch with Emma from Jane Austin. 

Who was your favorite teacher and why? Miss Orton--junior high English teacher.  She just made reading and writing fun--maybe because she was really easy to get off topic!

If Mrs. Tolley was given a $1000 she would go on a vacation. (I wonder where her top choice would be?)

What song would you sing at Karaoke night? I Will Survive-Gloria Gaynor

Who or what inspires you? The beauty of the world, and the beautiful people in the world.

Memory of school: “I remember my favorite art project ever was ruined when my  family moved from Utah to Kansas! And I loved reading--I checked out Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes over and over and over!”

What is your favorite thing to teach every year? “I love teaching some of the harder art concepts and seeing the understanding come on in a student’s eyes when they get it!  

What is the BEST thing about your job? “Watching kids express themselves through art!”

Tiger Pride Assembly

Attributions: 
Mrs. Miranda Graves

Mrs. Beckert loves to teach the students of Brookside about how to be friends, students and citizens.  This years theme is “We’re all in this Together.” With each assembly, Mrs. Beckert focuses on a skill or concept to help us become better.  This first assembly was about all of us being connected and how to be a good friend. She had each of the students make chains to show that we are all connected.

Name Art

Attributions: 
Mrs. Jill Tolley

The first Art project of the year was to turn our names or initials in to art!

The first and second graders concentrated on filling their pages with color and creativity, while the older grades had specific rules to follow.  Some practiced using scale and filling up a given space with their nam, either making a pinwheel type shape and writing their name in different scripts, or using the exact same design and writing style in 4 separate quadrants of their paper.  Of course, they did their best to fill the paper with color. Others practiced ruler skills in a single-point perspective name project, where at the end the goal was to have their names popping out of the paper in 3-D!  

We're looking forward to many more great projects this year in Art!

Mrs. Pickering’s class, along with the other first grade classes, had the opportunity to visit the Springville Museum of Art. While there students toured the Round Up: Icons of the West gallery and then played in the children’s underground gallery. They learned about different styles of art, and had the opportunity to make their own art work.
