Welcome to Art!

In art class we conceptualize artistic ideas while creating artworks that boast critical thinking skills, grow creativity and develop artistic skills!
Students are encouraged to keep a personal sketchbook and to bring it to class for discussion.  

My conference period is 12:18PM to 1:08PM. Please schedule an appointment to meet during this time.


Although art materials and supplies are provided, we accept donations.  Thank you!



También hablo Español!
