Welcome to Art Class!
After being the art teacher at Saint Joseph Elementary School for 24 years, I am thrilled to be back as the art teacher for Monsignor Haddad Middle School.
Today fast paced world is also a visual world. Navigating it demands creative thinking and the ability to see, interpret, and express art.
I want to give my students the tools to understand the value of art in their lives. Using all the elements and principles of art, students will use a variety of mediums to develop skills, visual observation, and creative thinking. All of these can be applied toward math, science and engineering.
My hope is to help students recognize art as an integral part of their education and come to understand that creative perspective and self expression are truly life skills.
Every child is an artist. The difficulty is in remaining an artist when you grow up.
