Art – All Grades

Miss Mannino

[email protected]


Welcome!  I am excited to welcome our students back to school for another wonderful year!


In Art, we will work on all projects in class.  We will attempt to incorporate various media as we create projects that align with district objectives and state-wide standards.  We may also participate in school-wide, district-wide, and outside programs and exhibits when possible. 



My name is Karen Mannino and I teach Art to all students at OECS.  I have been teaching for 17 years, 15 in Hillside.  My goal as a teacher is to help all students reach their artistic potential, and to develop other academic and SEL skills along the way.  You are welcome to contact me via the email adress listed above with any questions and/or concerns.  




We will be using Artsonia to virtually showcase our artwork! 

Artsonia is an online student art museum that showcases over 100 million pieces of art!

You can view our school's Artsonia gallery here:

Homework Policy

Students will not have homework but are welcome to to take home and make up any missing assignments.  These may be made up until the end of the marking period.  "60" grades will be given for any incomplete or missing assignment.  Students will be graded on effort, never ability.  Projects will be weighted as tests.
