Dear Parents and Students,
Hello and welcome (and welcome back) to ArtQuest Visual Fine Arts and the new School Year! You will get a complete “Class Information Packet” with more detailed information, specific to each level, in the coming weeks, but for now, we would like to focus on just the essentials.
THIS YEAR’S THEME – Each year, the ArtQuest program chooses a theme that provides a centerpiece for curriculum planning and collaboration. Thematic integration allows us to explore ideas in depth from many different perspectives, to redesign curriculum and to consider the role of artists in communicating ideas to their community and beyond. This year’s theme is “Objects in Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear”. We are taking this moment in time to reflect and look back on where we have come from and what in our past we can learn from and use to help propel us forward. To use history, gained knowledge and insight to steer us in the right direction. ArtQuest is celebrating its 25th Birthday this year and we couldn’t think of a better way to acknowledge this milestone, than to celebrate our past and explore our future.
We hope to see you all at our events so we can fill you in on all the exciting things happening in ArtQuest and in our classes. Please watch for the full “Class Information Packet” with more level-specific details about curriculum, assessment, expectations etc. Thank you for your support of your student and the arts in education. We look forward to a very good year.
We are going to be doing Shadowing this fall, after the hiatus of last year when we were out of school for so long it became too difficult to include Shadowing while catching up with everything else. We will begin taking Shadowing appointments and offering more detailed information in the early part of September, so please contact us then. The Shadowing program is tentatively scheduled to begin Tues., Oct 16th and will be available through Nov. 8th, mornings only, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, by appointment only.
I can also share with you, the AQ Fall Showcase (which is highly recommended for families and their students who are interested in attending AQ!) will be on Thurs., Oct. 4th, beginning at 6:30 pm in the Santa Rosa High School Auditorium.
Thank you very much for your interest in 'AQ'! We look forward to meeting you and your student!
