Ms. Frantz's Visual ArtRoom 704

A Comet Canvas Hello

The Visual Arts have materialized for the Fantastically

and Awesome New School Year of 2021-2022. 

This Fall semester will continue for Intermediate Artists,

and welcomes all new artists in their Beginning Visual Arts

classes. Be ready to enjoy an assortment of many artistic

challenges along with their Critical Thinking Criteria.

A little bit about me.

I am in my nointh year teaching the Visual Arts at Clayton High School, and in my twelfth year in education. 

I am a graduate of East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Communications Arts/Graphic

        Design. After a break from my busy Graphic Design career in Advertising, to raise my three children I began

        my second career in Fine/Visual Arts Education.

I began my Education Career as a Substitute Teacher, then as a Teacher’s Assistant at Cooper Elementary.

I re-enrolled with my alma mater (ECU) and achieved my Fine Arts Teaching Certificate,  and found my

        happy place teaching the Visual Arts at Clayton High School.  

I am an alumna of the Wake County Public Schools and currently live in the Clayton community. 

I am so excited to be a comet once again!, and I am COMETS-ALL-IN for the 2020-2021 Visual Arts school year.

             A Happy Birthday to Gustave Caillebotte.

               The month of August, during the mid 1800's, was a special month

               for artist Gustave Caillebotte, an astute French Painter who was a

               member and patron of the Impressionists, although he painted in

               a more realistic manner than many others in the group. Caillebotte

               was noted for his early interest in photography as an art form.


    Born: August 19, 1848, Paris, France
    Died: February 21, 1894, Gennevilliers, France
    Search the World Wide Web for this, one of his most recognizable paintings.
    You will be amazed with his work of realism!

    Right Side Comets' Canvas News Welcoming all to Art Room 704

  • Right Brain Google Classroom  


    Think of your Google ClassRoom as your

    Lifeline to anything and everything to do with your Visual 

    Arts this Fall Semester of the 2021-2022 School Year.


    Google ClassRoom is the "HUB" of your High School Art Program,

    may you be in the Visual Arts Level 1 or Levels 2, 3 & 4. It is where

    all is assigned, it is where all is found, and it is where all is to be

    uploaded for discussion and final grading.


    Art is the expression and/or application of human creative skill

    and imagination following well thought out assignments that

    entail well defined directions, step by step instructions along with

    important timed deadlines that must be met, for Art also entails

    the need for great self discipline to achieve the ending goal.


    Why are deadlines important to your art program you may ask.

    Deadlines help us to collaborate toward achieving a shared goal,

    and to keep complex, multistage projects on track. To set

    expectations. Deadlines make it clear as to what we're expected

    to deliver and when. This means that we take control of our work,

    free of confusion.


    Importance of timely submission of assignments, when submitted

    on their due dates, have a great impact on the overall grade of

    your work. Pay close attention to each assignment's timed

    indicator, as well as its directions, step by step instructions and its

    provided samples. Always check your Google Classroom as well as

    your Email Account. Much important information is sent, and both

    will always keep you clearly informed as to the needs of your High

    School Art Program, as well as to other important and needed

    school information.
