Welcome to my Spring Studio-Art Blog.
VA-Comp Students please bring one sheet of poster-board to class, a one subject spiral notebook, and a paper folder with pockets and prongs by Tuesday 1/16/2018. 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 pencil, pen, and notebook paper.*
Students and parents may always reach me through my Cobb County email. firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Pebblebrook High School website under Cobb County Schools.
