Welcome to our 2017 Spring Art Studio Blog. 

VA-Comp Students please bring one sheet of poster-board to class and a paper folder with pockets and prongs by Wednesday 1-12-2017. We will fold the poster-board to create a large portfolio to store your student art in throughout the semester.

*Students should always come prepared to class with a pencil, pen, and notebook paper.*

Students and parents may always reach me through my Cobb County email. janet.suarez@cobbk12.org or through the Pebblebrook website under Cobb County Schools.
