Weekly Announcements
  • 5-21-2020 Announcement

    Hello Everyone.  It's been a while since the last announcement.  I wanted to remind you that you have a total of five assignments due for this class.  I'm not going to add any more at this point in time because I want you all to focus on getting everything done.  Now, I don't want you to wait until the last second to submit your assignments.  If you still have something to complete and turn in to me, then let's get it done. 

    Also, next week is locker clean out and that means we need to get our art work our of the art room.  Everyone has a portfolio that they need to pick up and take home with them in addition to cleaning out their locker.  Even if you plan to take art next year I still want you to take your portfolios home.  I will be at school on The 26th and 27th to supervise those who come in to get their things.  If you come at a later date,  you will need to get access to the art room to find your belongings.  

    I will  send out another reminder  on Monday of next week. Till then, take care and get things turned in.

    Attention all Art students.  Effective immediately, all work is to be submitted through my gmail /panther country account until further notice.  I have two email addresses listed on each classroom homepage, and there is a link for submitting work through the panther country classroom.  But please, use only my gmail account to send me your work.  If you're not familiar with what it looks like, here it is:     

    This will make it easier for me to go through submitted assignments and be able to go back and check past emails.

  • 4-17-20 Announcement

    Hello everyone.  I just wanted to give an update on a couple of things that came to my attention the last couple of days.  Apparently, your assignments disappear off of the live page that you all see once the due date for those assignments has come and gone.  I wasn't aware of this fact until yesterday.  But as of right now, I think we have the problem fixed and you should be able to see all of the past assignments listed.  Second, I want to clarify a new class policy.  From this point out, the due dates for all projects are being pushed back to the end of May.  So if you haven't completed an assignment, please go back and complete anything you are missing.  


  • 4-14-20 Announcement

    If you haven't submitted work for assignments 1 or 2, there is still time. I will still accept your work until this Friday.  Try your best to get things to me by then.

     Hello everyone.  I just wanted to let you all know that your next assignment will be uploaded on Monday.  My goal will be to have one to two assignments per week moving forward.  It's very important that you check back periodically to see what will be due for this class.  Also, assignments must be submitted by the due dates.  Because of the extended time I'm allotting for the assignments, I can't make exceptions for this.  Also, for the time being use my gmail when submitting responses, uploading pictures, etc.  

    Alright guys, have a nice weekend and check for your next assignment on Monday.
