I am Miss Bonner and I am the art teacher of all students at Gravely.   I see each class for 45 minutes once every 6 days.  We follow the VA and PWC Visual Art SOLs.  Your child will learn about a variety of art techniques, styles, and artists this year in art.  Please check in frequently as this is where you will find out what your child is working on this week in art along with any art announcements.  If you ever have any questions or concerns please contact me at bonnersl@pwcs.edu


About Me

      

My name is Stephanie Bonner.  I am the art teacher at Gravely Elementary.  This school year will mark my 12th year at Gravely and my 13th  year in the county.  I am a Virginia native that grew up  in Prince William County.  I currently live in the Shenandoah Valley.  I have a Bachelor's degree in Art/Graphic Design from Radford University and a Master's Degree in Education from the University of Mary Washington.  When I am not at Gravely, I enjoy running, reading, being outside, going to the beach, and photographing my adventures.

  • I've been told that many of my feedback emails/videos through Flipgrid are going to parent's "junk" folders in their email.  I have been giving feedback to each post on Flipgrid.  If you are not receiving them, please check your junk folder.
  • I will be posting lessons in the "files and documents" section.  You will go to "files and documents"-"learning from home"-"lessons"  or ClickHereForLessons
  • In the "file and documents" section you can find an adapted pacing guide.  It has the projects we have not covered yet highlighted in red. I also have the county and state SOLS for visual art.  On the bottom of the pacing guide I have listed what main technique we have yet to cover for each grade level.  For example, painting, printing, etc.  ClickHereForPacingGuide
