Mr. David McElveen, Visual Arts, AYE

  • Dear Anthony Elementary Parents and Students,

    I hope you all are healthy and happy during this unique challenge we are all facing.

    We will be using this web page to provide you with Art activities while we are engaging in "Distance Learning" and until we return to school in person. My office hours will be from 10:00 am to 11:00 am and 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. I will respond immediately to emails during these hours from Monday thru Friday. Due to current school board policy, I will not be available at school until further notice.

    I will also hold an open Zoom meeting on Friday, from 12:00 pm to 12:30 pm. I will post the link on the "Course Info "page. You can join the meeting and ask any questions you may have, or just to say "Hi!"

    Each week, I will provide activities for two (2) grade levels, beginning with Kindergarten and 1st grade. This means your student will have an Art assignment once every three (3) weeks. I will post the assignemnts on the "Assignment" page along with links to any external resources you may want to access.

    Since this is ART, you will not be turning anything into me. Your art is YOURS. I just want to provide everyone with the opportunity to learn techniques and practice their art skills. If anything, you will simply send me pictures, questions, or concerns, through email or text. 

    I hope that by participating in Art, you will be able to more easily adapt to the changes we are all adapting to.

    As always, if you have any questions or need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

    Thank you and be safe,

    Mr. McElveen

    P.S. Baby Yoda from the Mandalorian is not actually Yoda. While they are the same species, the Mandalorian timeline takes place AFTER the fall of the Empire in the "Return of the Jedi"...after Yoda had already passed away. So, if anyone tells you that it is actually Yoda, they are wrong. Don't believe them.
