Art in Room 312

Welcome to the Appling Middle 2018-2019 school year. I am looking forward to an exciting year with your child in Art. This Art course will have a strong emphasis on art techniques, art history and art criticism. We will spend the first semester studying the Elements of Art and the second semester studying the Principles of Design. I can be contacted at Mwilson@BartlettSchools.org or 373-1410.

Sincerely,
