Welcome to the Art Class Room!

Welcome back to a new school year in Art! If you have any questions you can email me at: jhuderski@stathanasiusacademy.org

The Art supply lists, homework assignments, study sheets for quizzes and artwork by the artist of the month can be found on your grade pages. Parents, I encourage you to look at the artist of the month’s artwork with your children. Share some art appreciation time with them! Also, I have attached a blog that contains my education, teaching strategies, assessment strategies, learning goals and advice on how to help your children excel in art! Go to stathanasiusacademy.org/14/teacher-info

FYI: Homework: I often change the due dates and extend the time to give kids the chance to bring things in (Though I would rather get them in by the original due dates). I don’t grade work late. However, if a homework assignment is not in by the end of the grading period the grade will be zero or missing. 

See the class pages for Art supply lists, Homework Assignments and Students of the Month!
