Martin Scanlon

Well, here we go again. This will be my 28th year at Helena High and I gotta say that I’d never imagine being as blessed as I am in my career. Still love the challenge. Life is full of challenges. Never become limited by your challenges. Challenge your limits. Fair enough. I’m Marty Scanlon. I started with Ceramics my first 4 years here and it’s been all Art classes since. I teach Art I, Art II, and Art IV. Love it all. Live and breathe art. I’m not great at anything but pretty good at everything. That’s not being cocky. That’s being confident. I’ve been very fortunate and blessed to make a career of it. And God willing I’ll finish with it. Enough of me.

It’s all about you.

As for all my art classes, I have a syllabus that lays out the descriptions and expectations. Please read through all of it and if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me anytime. We will do what we can do as best as we can do it. Just hang in there and make the effort. No, I don’t grade on talent. Don’t even use the word in art. So take a deep breath and exhale. It will all be good. Please, no stress. Don’t. Done deal. Mediums may be of a challenge but always solvable.

So, here we go. Relax, enjoy, smile, breath, create, grow, laugh. Who knows…you might surprise yourself with something amazing!
