The Joy of Elementary Art and Engaged Learning!
I believe that the elementary art room should be a place where students feel safely challenged while experiencing a love of learning art. Personal ideas and self expression should be reflected in each student's project. Lessons should be innovative and relevant while teaching what is best about Art's great history. Skills should be explored and developed as ways to communicate better as young artist grow. All student artists should feel validated, engaged and nurtured from each of their ability levels, cultural backgrounds and personal interests.
