​Second nine weeks. Wow this school year is moving fast. Art I will be studying the elements form and texture over the next two weeks or so. Art II will be learning about acrylics and beginning their first acrylic painting. Art III an IV will be refreshing on watercolor and doing a mixed acrylic media piece. That leaves VPA....we just saw The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow..prety good, especially the visual art aspects. 


We're back!
Just in time and with a lot of effort this page is being updated.  So here goes. As you already know you can contact me at my school email at anytime as some of you already have done.  So if you can contact me by school email, why do this to?  Because, we love overkill and finding a way to do something twice and taking the time to do it twice seems to be the aim of a lot things we do.  

“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
