Square 1 Art

                             

For the past 18 years, Ms. Isoline has been the art teacher at Travis Heights Elementary School. In all of those years, the first project of the year has been Square 1 Art. Square 1 Art is a project where students get a theme to draw. The themes change every year so that students will not repeat ideas. Once they are finished drawing, Ms. Isoline sends all of the artwork in to the company Square 1 Art. Then, parents get to order items with their students’ artwork on them, such as mugs, pillowcases, sketchbooks, or even flags.  This year, fifth grade students drew mythical beasts. This opens up to fairies, Egyptian gods or goddess, or even a mythical phoenix. Be sure to order items with your student’s artwork on them as soon as the forms come out in Wednesday folders.
