Welcome back, Artists!!!!

I am so happy to be creating art with you. Everything you need for Middle School Art will be located on this page.  Art class will take place every Friday.  During that time you will have an 'Assignment' to work on while in the computer lab and an additional "Homework" assignment.  Additional helpful resources can be found on the "Resources" link on the left hand side of this screen. Be sure to complete in-class activities (you will find directions in the PowerPoints) and turn in your homework each week by Thursday evening. I look forward to working with you virtually this quarter. 

Let's get started!
