• Welcome to Art!

    Bienvenue and Welcome!

    This year we will be exploring the elements of art and principles of design. We will draw, paint, and build sculptures and explore a variety of different art mediums such as graphite, colored pencil, pastel, watercolor, paint, clay, printmaking, paper mache, and much more. We'll also learn about different art periods and how culture shapes art. Students will gain an appreciation for art and learn how to become better visual critics.

    I am looking forward to getting to know each of you this year. Because I am a traveling teacher (split between Cooper and WHS), I am most easily reached by email. You can email me at:
