    Teaching Elementary Art is the BEST!  It is so great to be able to expose kids to different kinds of materials and techniques, to different artists, to different ways of looking at things, and then to watch them solve art challenges in new and individual ways.  I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year with your child in the Art Room - Their Art Room!
    I believe that the arts (visual arts, music, theatre, and dance) are an important part of a student's education.  It is my passion to provide your child with the best art education that I possibly can.  I will introduce them to artists that I think will be interesting to them.  I will provide the historical and cultural contexts in which they created their work.  Your children will have the opportunity to work with various art materials and tools, including technology.  They will have the opportunity to begin to develop a style that is all their own, and ultimately be able to see,create, think, and communicate in new ways.
