What is the name of this teen book?

Read it back in 1982 so the book probably was published in the 1970s. The girl lives with an abusive mother and the father who is an artist disappears from their life. The girl wants to be an artist and has a talent but the mother will not allow any art or art supplies in the house. With the encouragement of a teacher, she works on her skills. The mother catches her drawing and goes nuts and beats her badly. I think the girl get adopted by the teacher at the end of the book. The title may have had these words in it: Panes and Glass

    That book was written in 2015 but heading in the right direction. That sounds like a good book as well
