Fine Arts



Mrs. Gallagher

Welcome to the Art page!

We will complete 3 units of study during the school year: 
Color, Design & Portrait

During the Color Unit, we will focus on color theory, vocabulary, mixing color and painting.  During the Design Unit, we will look at the Elements of Art (Line, Shape, Color) and Art and Cultures from around the world.  Our Portrait Unit will concentrate on a progression of skills to develop portrait drawing abilities.

To encourage creativity at home, try keeping simple crafts materials on hand. Papers, markers, colored pencils, scissors and glue are all you need to let a little creativity run wild, and there are numerous craft kits that you can do together or your child can do on their own.
Take advantage of visiting an art museum during school breaks, or look into art classes through local arts organizations if you want a broader experience for your child.

Did you know you can photograph your child's personal artwork at home and upload it to their Personal Gallery on Artsonia? For iphone and ipad users, there is an app for Artsonia to help make it even easier.  Or you can still upload pictures of artwork right from your camera to your computer and then upload it to Artsonia

Please email me at with any questions and feel free to let me know what you think of our artwork and the display on Artsonia!

Instrumental Music: By Mrs. Perry

As the school year comes to a close, I would like to thank the parents, staff, Mr. Facsiana and our students for a wonderful year in instrumental music.  I would like to remind our fourth grade students to continue to practice over the summer so they do not lose the skills they have worked so hard to build and I would like to wish our fifth grade students nothing but success and happiness as they move on to Brook lawn Middle School.  It has been a pleasure working with the students at Mt. Tabor School this year. 

Have a safe and healthy summer.
