Welcome Back Students!!!

Welcome to art! I'm excited to see everyone and start the year! If you missed orientation I believe the slideshow will be able to help answer some questions. If you it doesn't then please email or call me so we can straighten things out.

I'm excited to work with your student(s) and we have a ton of different projects lined up so that they experience a wide range of art mediums and expression.

Here is to a great year! I wish all of you much success!

Welcome to 4th Quarter!!!

 Welcome to 4th Quarter! It won't be long now until summer vacation! Hang in there! 

In 7th Grade and 8th Grade we have been working with clay, and we are pretty much ready to load the kiln! In second period 7th Grade we will finally be able to go outside and paint with watercolors! Nothing like spring plein air painting!

In 7th Grade in all classes we have been learning about the Elements and Principles of Design. This Friday students will learn the principles of design. All 7th Grade students will have an open note quiz on Monday April, 26th. If you missed class you can find the notes in Google Classroom, or click the following link. Principles of Design Presentation

In 8th Grade we have been working with clay in all classes with the exception of 8th Period who have chose to do various projects ranging from clay, string art. 

8th Grade - 6th Period has started their 2nd project, a Papier-mâché design of their own choosing. 

Here we go!
