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 Students of the Month!
