A Comet Canvas Hello
The Visual Arts have materialized for the Fantastically
and Awesome New Year of 2021.
This second semester of 2020-2021 will continue with
its many artistic challenges to be had besides Covid19.
A little bit about me.
I am in my eighth year teaching the Visual Arts at Clayton High School, and in my eleventh 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.

of the circle of painters in Paris who became known as the
Impressionists. It was in 1864, that Morisot exhibited for the
first time in the highly esteemed Salon de Paris.

Think of your Google ClassRoom as your
Lifeline to anything and everything to do with your Art
Program this 2nd Semester of the 2020-2021 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
