Welcome to Art!


In this class, students will use a variety of materials and techniques to create sketchbooks, drawings, paintings, printing, three dimensional sculptures and ceramic works of art, as well as learn about Art History. With the exception of the portfolio, students will be exposed to different projects during their three years at Page. All of the work is done in class and will be brought home with a grade sheet to be signed by a parent or guardian and returned. All materials are provided. No experience required.

Studio Art

Studio Art is an in-depth study of various techniques and art history. This class allows students the opportunity for an independent study. Students will further their creative thinking process, as well as provide them with a studio atmosphere, allowing for personal growth. This class requires previous art experience and Mrs. Gower's signature.

The following are guidelines for the classroom:
