Ms. Heather Fortner

Hello and welcome. 

My goal as an art teacher is to give my students the necessary tools and time to discover their own creativity and help them see art as an enduring and positive outlet for their own self-expression.

This is my second year at Sentinel High School, and around my 15th year teaching. This year, I will be teaching art in the afternoon and you can find me in the counseling department in the morning completing my counseling internship.  I look forward to being a part of the the creative experience with my students at Sentinel, we have an exciting year ahead.

    Hello art students!

    I hope you are all feeling okay and taking care of yourselves.

    The best way to find out what is going on over the next week (or so) will be to visit our google classroom page.  Nearly all of you have already joined, if you have not you should do so.  See info below. 

    Currently, I have a letter explaining what to expect in so far as art and what I know (or, more accurately, don't know) at this time (on google classroom and I am attaching it here): Letter to Students

    Please visit that site and go over the letter.

    If you have any questions or would like to reach out, don't hesitate. I would love to hear from you. You can contact me through either of the following emails:



    I will also be putting together a document by tomorrow afternoon that you will be able to share with me in order for me to know what kind of supplies you may have access to at home and what you might need.

    Again, please contact me if you would like.

    Mrs. Fortner
