Welcome Back Art Students!

We are so excited to see everyone!

Freshman– WELCOME!!!  You will soon come to see the Art Department is a big family with SO MUCH to offer! Within the department there are a wide range of courses you can take throughout high school.  You will even find that many students take multiple art classes within a year!  Outside of class there are many opportunities for contests, exhibits and special events.

Be sure to check with your teachers and check this website for upcoming opportunities.

Upperclassmen – WELCOME HOME!  We are counting on you to help guide the freshman as they join in our department.  Other updates:

Work from the end of the year art show is available with your classroom teachers from last year.  Please pick it up by the end of next week.

The first Art Honor Society meeting will be the last Tuesday in September.  More info to follow.

Also stay tuned for the first Art Club meeting.
