 Art Supplies

 Ø Visual Art is an elective course in which students produce personal art for shows and to keep. 

       Art students are not required to bring any art supplies. 

              *However, because of the rising costs of art supplies and equipment we are requesting that all students donate $5.00 to help with those costs.
  •  We do not recieve any funding for Art class supplies from the district. Our financial support for supplies and equiptment comes directly from our students and families through gifts and donations.

Ø All art requested funds go directly to buy the best art supplies and equipment possible so students may have a rewarding learning experience in art, exploring self-expression while practicing creative problem solving skills.    

  •  The class that brings the highest percentage of their fee's back wins an art party, the privilege to listen to their own music on their devices during studio time and a few other benefits as opportunities arise. 

Ø Thank you for all financial support that allows our students to have a high quality art program.

                                                                                              Grading Policies
 Student grades are given as Letter Grades and Percentages.
