    Dear parents,

    This Sunday is the last art class in 2014.  We are going to draw and color Santa Claus.  Then we have a holiday break and resume art class on 1/11/15.  After this Sunday class, we have two more classes (1/11/151/18/15).  Then we start a new semester, the spring semester on 1/25/15. I hope that every one has a good time and won’t forget to register for a new semester.

    We have had wonderful classes over last month. We discussed holidays and holiday related decorations and symbols. Towards this direction, we made artworks of turkey, Christmas tree, wreath and bells. On the coming Sunday, we draw and color Santa Claus. The students not only learn holiday culture, but also recognize holiday related objects around them.  Their meaning, their beauty, their story are all fascinating, so artworks display all of those.  Kids are getting more and more comfortable about class. When they come to class, they are ready and prepared to draw.  They are clearly interested in drawing objects by themselves in the class and coloring it in their own way based on my instruction. They have their own artistic view and truly believe their ability of drawing. I am glad to see their confidence on their drawing and coloring skills.  They all have potential to develop to an artist with parents’ and teachers’ support.

    Meanwhile, I wish all of you happy holidays and happy new year!
