Students will learn about different artists and gain exposure to different types of artwork. Students will continue to develop skills in artistic expression, and artistic decision making. Students will gain skills in different art mediums such as drawing, painting, collage, and weaving.
The two things I love most in life is art and teaching! I have a degree in art education and have lots of experience working with young students.
