Art Class is Awesome!

This year has provided us a very different kind of Art class.  We have relocated to a computer lab temporarily while our renovation is underway.  Very soon we will be back to a new art room with new furniture.  I hope to have a renewed energy when we return.  We have definitely gotten a good rest after a week off for cold winter weather. We will continue using Google Classroom for our lessons.  This is a wonderful platform that allows students to revisit lessons whenever they need them.  We have so much to look forward to in 2018.  It is going to be a great year.


American poet Celia Thaxter once wrote, “There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.”

I am grateful to be a part of our wonderful school, and I look forward to working with you whenever you need assistance.
