Mr. Tony Thomasson

My name is Tony Thomasson and I am the Art teacher at Mt. Olivet and Drewry Mason Elementary schools for the 2019 - 2020 school year.  I taught Art in Chesterfield County in Richmond, Virginia for 17 years before moving back to Henry County.  This is my fourth year here.   I live in Bassett with my wife Kathy and a black, 40 lb. rescue dog named Jack.  We have two grown sons who live in Richmond.   Art Education is a valuable addition to children's overall learning experience, complimenting and enforcing the core subjects.  I look forward to seeing the students' great artwork again this year!

Hello Spartans!  I hope that you are all taking this opportunity to practice your drawing skills.  As we work in Canvas there are some advantages!  In watching the instructional video you may want to stop it at a certain point to think about and apply the step you just saw.  Or, if you need to you can go back and watch part of  it or all of it again . Sometimes I'll place extra visuals in the "Files" section for some other views of the assignment we are doing.  Always check "Assignment" on the canvas art page for your grade for the video.  Take a picture or video of your drawing and upload to canvas.  I will comment and give further instructions.  Thank You!
