Mrs. Stevenson is the BTSALP Visual Arts Specialist at Ascent Academies – Farmington. The morning we visited, she taught the first graders about mixing colors, primary, and secondary colors. She talked about Thanksgiving and read a story about the Pilgrims and Native Americans. Mrs. Stevenson also talked about how important corn or maize was. It was great seeing the first graders work and interact with Mrs. Stevenson and her teacher’s assistant, Mrs. Hart (she’s so helpful!)! It was also fun to see the different projects they had done with the students throughout the school!

think it’s so great and important that Mrs. Stevenson posts information about the art projects! It helps to show that integration is happening, creates a gallery in the hallway, and helps parents know what their kids are learning.
