Happy Spring Flatiron families! March is here and there is lots happening in the Art room at Flatirons. I have a few exciting celebrations that I want to share with everyone. The BVSD District K-8 Art Show is happening at the Boulder Library April 7-May 7, 2023. Everyone is welcome to go see all the amazing artwork created this school year at the BVSD schools. Congratulations to the following students whose artwork was selected to represent Flatirons Elementary: Elodie A. in Kindergarten, Maggie J. in first grade, Hannah S. in second grade, Olivia G. in third grade, Finn K. in fourth grade, and Zoey Z. in fifth grade.
Also more exciting art news... Earlier this school year all third and fifth grade classes participated in an art collaboration with the T2 Dance studio in a project called The Color Wheel. It was a really cool opportunity for students to work with professional dancers and learn more about how the performance art and visual arts can be connected. The T2 dancers came to school and introduced the project and explained how visual art can inspire dances. The T2 Dance studio then chose art to choreograph dances around to be performed at The Dairy Art Center on April 2, 2022. Two student's art from Flatirons were selected to be part of the show! Congratulations to Azure and Charlie P. in fifth grade. To learn more www.T2DANCE.org/color. I am very excited for the students and can't wait to see the show.
Meet Flatirons Elementary Art Teacher: Katie Salazar
Hello Flatirons families! My name is Katie Salazar and I am the Flatirons Elementary Art Teacher. Flatirons is such wonderful team of dedicated educators.
My family and I share our time between Boulder and Summit County. I have had the pleasure of being an art teacher for children for the past fourteen years working. I have two beautiful daughters and a fun-loving dog that keep me very busy. When I'm not teaching art, I am a watercolor artist, working on commission, specializing in architectural renderings, cabin portraits and mountain landscapes.

I look forward to teaching your children art this year!
