Students, I am pleased to welcome you to your Art class. Building a positive teacher-student relationship and a supportive learning environment are priorities for me. I look forward to getting to know you and partnering with you in growing your art knowledge, skills, and creative ability.

Required Materials

Students are required to have the following supplies for class. If you are unable to supply them, you must communicate this to me so that I can provide them for you. The following art materials can be found at Walmart for as little as $5.00 - $9.00 per item.

  • Sketchbook - They are less expensive in the school supplies department than in arts and crafts section.
  • Acrylic paintbrushes - Purchase a variety brush set of Royal Langnickel or another brand.
  • Earbuds or headphones for assignments that require audio/video on your computer.

Google Classroom

  • Join your specific Google Classroom at your first opportunity.
  • This is your primary source for assignment details, content, and resources. You are expected to read what I post, ask questions when you do not understand something, and submit your assignments here.
  • Read the questions and/or feedback I provide to you in the comment/message feature. Use it to communicate with me.
  • GC is one method of how I track if you have met the assignment due date, which affects your grade.
