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 third 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. This is a great time to get outside and observe Spring as it arrives and draw some of the plants and animals that you're seeing. Remember: If you practice the drawing steps that are on "Drawing Sheet One" and "Drawing Sheet Two", which are on the overview page of this site, you'll not only get better at drawing things like trout, dogwoods, cardinals and sharks, but you'll sharpen your skills for drawing other things that appeal to you. Coming soon is a little story about my buddy Jack and his encounter with one of the neighbor's chickens, and some more drawing exercises. In the meantime stay safe and smart and I look forward to seeing you soon! Mr. T
