    Please note that my website is for general information only. Students will find any and all announcements, communications, updates, etc. on their Canvas art home page.

    PARENTS: Stay up to date as well by getting a parent Canvas account. Find out how below.





    ATTENTION!!!! - The title above is a clickable link. It will take you to the HMS page with the supply list announcment. There you will be able to find the PDF of suggested items. If you are unable to purchase materials for any reason, I will be providing limited, sanitized materials that may be needed for that day. I try to allow choice of materials in most of my projects; however there are some skills such as shading that do need specific materials.

    It has been brought to my attention that Dick Blick is currently unable to keep up with supplies. Items are no longer on back order. They have begun canceling orders. Please look elsewhere for your supplies. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. You can piece a supply kit together through Amazon, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, AZ Art Supply.


    Due to beginning the year via home learning, your student will need some basic, standard supplies. While these supplies are an optional purchase, I will be using them as the foundation of my lessons/curriculum. Blick Art Supplies has been busy putting together "At Home Art Lab" bundles which will work quite nicely for our purposes. Please follow the link to 1) see what is in the bundle to purchase elsewhere OR 2) purchase directly from Blick by clicking on the image below.

    Art Supplies


     Please note if you plan to purchase elsewhere:

    1) Drawing pad - Please do not purchase anything smaller than 8 x 10 or larger than 11 x 14; medium surface/multi-media (50-65 lb). Our students will be using these to create a visual journal to take notes, practice skills and techniques, etc. essentially creating a timeline of their skills, as well as, a working portfolio.

    2) Please consider, if you are able, purchasing supplies from an art supply store. When it comes to art supplies, you really do get what you paid for. It is also important to note that some "craft stores" such as Michaels and Hobby Lobby have separate aisles for "art supplies" and aisles specifically dedicated to pencils, paints, etc. The designated aisles are specifically geared towards Artists and will have better, longer lasting options still with a range in price point.

    3) Some brand names to look for: Strathmore, Staedtler, General, Prismacolor, Winsor & Newton, Derwent, Faber-Castell, Blick, Canson.

    Is there a Hillcrest teacher you would like to recognize?

    Staff and teachers work hard to make Hillcrest a great place for our students to attend and there are many ways to say "Thank you" and honor their efforts. All from a smile and wave in the mornings to local and even national recognition. Below, I have provided a few links for you if you would like to nominate a Hillcrest staff or teacher. I encourage you to also look on the world wide web for other programs as there are tons out there and some specific to subject areas.
