• Mrs. Planer

    Art Teacher

    Grades 1-8 will have art on a weekly basis throughout the entire school year. Art will be in person (art on a cart). Students will need to keep their work with them as they make progress, a folder may be helpful so that they don't misplace their work (students in school will be creating one to keep in the classroom). Please reach out with any questions or concerns and I would be happy to help!
