Welcome To Our
Art Class!

Art Supply Costs:
If your student need to purchase, for the first time, or replace a sketchbook, the cost will be as stated below.
All secondary art students must purchase a sketchbook and brushes for use during the year.
If your student already has a sketchbook (with blank pages left in it) and brushes from last year, they will not have to purchase new ones, this year.

ARTIST BRUSHES (set of 10).......$5.00


Our Online Art Museum!

Opportunities to support our Visual Arts Class continues this year, with ARTSONIA!

Artsonia is the largest online art museum in the world, where your child's artwork can be displayed to family and friends. It is a secure website concerned with your child's safety. When you give permission (which is good for the entire time your child attends Grace) your child will be issued an ID number such as, "Becky4294" Your child's last name and personal information are never given out, or put online! Others who may view your child's work may leave comments, as can  you and your family. But you will see the comments first, and be able to determine if you wish to allow that comment to be posted to the site.

Remember! 20% of your purchase comes back to the GCS Visual Arts Class! This will help supplement out budget, and help us purchase much needed supplies and equipment!

Thank you for your support!

Mrs. Tarantino


Parents and Middle School & High School Art Parents!!!

Your student's art assignments will be posted to this website.   

 Middle school and high school parents and students, will find their students assignments under the tab marked Middle School & High School Assignments.    

The students will receive, in class, an assignment sheet containing all of their sketchbook and art vocabulary assignments for the entire quarter.       

They have the option of choosing which of sketchbook assignments they will do for the upcoming due date.  All assignments must be done before the end of the quarter unless otherwise stated. If there are pictures, for the students use, included with the assignment, I will also post those on the site, as well.                                         

I will post the number of the assignment in the notes portion of Gradelink, so you and your student can know which assignment each grade is for. All sketchbook assignments have an identifying number before it.
