• Welcome Muhlenberg Elementary Center Parents and Families!
       I am excited to be sharing another exciting year of art with your children!  This year, students in grades K-3, will be studying diverse cultures in art.  Every child will leave art class with an understanding and appreciation of art and cultures from around the world.  
       Students will focus on the following units within the art history curriculum:
    • Pre-Columbian Art
    • Art of Mexico
    • Native North American Art
    • North American Folk Art
    • European Folk Art
    • Art of Africa
    • Art of Asia
    • Women in Art History

       Within our multicultural art curriculum, students will develop an understanding of the elements of art:  line, shape, color, texture, form, space, and value.  Students will learn to communicate using a basic vocubarly of art as they learn to consider the elements of art within their works of art.

       My goal as your child's art teacher is to introduce and expose your child to art and the thought processes and skills required to make art.  Students will learn learn thought processes and skills within each project that are relevant to the world around them.  I believe that every child can and will succeed within the art classroom.  My goal is to instill a love of art and learning within each student by teaching age appropriate and exciting lessons that challenge and meet the needs of each learner in the art room.  Students will develop a healthy confidence in their abilities as an artist as they learn and grow each year in the art classroom. 
       During virtual learning time this year, my colleague, Annie Shrawder and I will collaborate to create virtual lessons that meet the needs of your students at home.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me through email at manwillerk@muhlsdk12.net.

    *Class Dojo:  Class Dojo is a web-based tracking system that allows teachers to communicate your child's daily progress at school.  You will be able to see all of your child's feedback from teachers, view important announcements and updates, and see photos and videos from their class/school.  Patrents and guardians will either be invited by email or send home a parent code.
    *ZPass:  ZPass is a program that tracks when and where students get on and off the bus.  This program also tracks when walkers or family pick up students depart from the building.  The Zpass information is updated in real time and the information is available on www.zpassplus.com or on the app.
