Mrs. Shawn Heiges


My name is Shawn Heiges. It has been my pleasure to teach art at Biglerville Elementary School for the past 14 years! During my career as an educator I've enjoyed a wide range of teaching experiences from kindergarten through the college level. I am especially grateful for the energy and enthusiasm from my early elementary students.

In my spare time, I love to create with clay!

Please click Google Classroom to join the Biglerville Elementary art activities. The class code is drb52xz. That is where I will provide lesson plans and ideas you can do at home. On my following pages are samples of lesson plans for all 4 grade levels. These are not required lessons. They're just available for any students who really want to dig into a more in-depth art project. I understand that you may not have access to an abundance of art materials. Many of the lessons only require crayons and paper.

Also, here is a link with all kinds of fun art activities you can do from home


** Please note that Google Classroom is where I will continue to add learning tools and lesson plans to aid students, teachers, parents, and guardians. Remember to check there regularly for new content, and more importantly, to maintain a strong community connection to each other during this very difficult time. Stay safe!
