Every 4th grader will be taking the Art SLO during art class this rotation (8/8-8/16). We will also be providing make up testing in the next few days for any students that have been absent.
Please come join us in celebrating 26 of Big Shanty's talented artists along with other Cobb County elementary students on April 21, 6pm-8pm at The Art Station-Big Shanty.
Make sure you buy your tickets for this year's Big Shanty Fine Arts Talent Show and Art Show. The show starts at 6:00pm on Friday evening, and we will have a pizza dinner for purchase. This is a very exciting event where we are able to spotlight all the amazing talent of our students.
Five of our students will have work displayed at The Art Station at Big Shanty. The art show will be on display February 4-27. The opening reception is February 11, 6pm-8pm.
We celebrated our talent at the Celebrating Diversity Art Show on Thursday. It was a wonderful opportunity for our artists at Big Shanty to display our work and to see all the amazing talent in our county. The art show was a combination of Elementary, Middle, and High School work. The artwork will be on display until January 22. So, if you didn't have the opportunity to make it for the opening, don't worry! Please take the time to go see all the beautiful artwork.
Several students from each grade level have artwork on display at the Celebrating Diversity Art Exhibit. These students should have received an invitation in their Thursday folders. Please come to the show to see the talented work of our Big Shanty art students as well as talented art students throughout Cobb County.
I am the art teacher at Big Shanty Intermediate School. I have been teaching art for 12 years, and have taught all grade levels, K-12. I have two daughters, one is a 5th grader here at Big Shanty, and my other daughter is in 6th grade at Palmer. I love to paint, and I specialize in portraiture, abstract art, cityscapes, and flower paintings. I am so excited about this 2016-2017 school year!
