Welcome to Mrs. Banks Art Site!
Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year! This is the start of my 16 th year teaching Art in Belle Plaine! 
Below are links to find out more information about T.A.B., Artist Trading Cards, and 2016-2017 Jr. High Visual Arts Team information.  
    Just posted (March 2017):
*Our WOW projects are coming in and soon I'll be posting the photos of the projects in the Art gallery for you to check out. Instead of sorting them by grade I'll be organizing them by Art centers: Drawing, Fiber Arts, Collage, Painting, Sculpture, and Ceramics. Check back soon to see them here or swing by Oak Crest and check out the display cases as they are filling up.   
     I'm continually working on this site so come back soon and see what I've added.
