Welcome to Rocky Fork Art Class

Hello Artists and Parents!

Welcome! I am so excited about ART CLASS this year. Expect to learn about the creative process, the role of art in our lives, and many awesome skills for creating amazing artwork!

Remember,

Check your grades regularly through Skyward using your assigned username and password. If you need assistance with your login information, visit or call our attendance office. 
 
To help keep things simple this year, each Friday I will post and agenda with the standards we are working on, the projects and activities, and a link to find assignments if you are quarantined. Please make sure you look for your GRADE LEVEL AGENDA because I teach 6-8!
