Welcome to Art Class!
My name is Mrs. Valenti and I have been teaching art at school #17 for 14 years
I am very happy to be your child's Art Educator. I am here to guide your child artistically and allow them to experiment and build self-developed concepts creatively in the art room. We focus on the Elements of Art (Line, Shape, Color, Texture, Space, Form and Value), learn about different Artists, Art History and Art Movements while incorporating the CCLS (Common Core Learning Standards).
If you have a child that is talented in art and you would like them to pursue the visuals arts at BAVPA for 5th grade, please note that there is a portfolio review and requirements for entry. Testing and review is done in October. Further information may be accessed through Performing Arts Website http://www.buffaloschools.org/Visual_PerformingArts.cfm?subpage=45509 . Please contact me directly if you need more information.
