In the Art classroom, children will explore the world of Art. As the Art teacher at WHES, I am the facilitator and guide, giving our students a chance to create and solve artistic problems and get out of their comfort zones. I help students gain the skills they need to communicate their ideas and make art that is meaningful to them. I try to challenge students to try new things and to achieve what they thought they couldn't. I incorporate cross-curricular experiences in the art room. We work to build literacy skills through observing and talking about art, and by writing about students' own ideas and artwork. I look forward to exploring Art adventures with our students, and watching them grow as individuals and as Artists.
