Art

The Virtual Learning activity for Mr. Malone's Art Classes will be a drawing tutorial from the "Art for Kids Hub" YouTube channel. Students are familiar with these lessons, as we have used these tutorials for our drawing units in the past, and the kids love them! Students may choose any video from the channel they would like to try, follow along, and hand the finished drawings in to Mr. Malone at the end of the second Virtual Learning period. The videos often recommend using Sharpie to draw with, but any drawing implement may be used (what ever you may have or prefer). Be sure to color them in, and as always, WRITE YOUR NAME ON THE BACK! Good luck, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!
