all heard “a picture is worth a thousand words.” It is my goal to teach the
students at St. John Vianney the fundamentals of using, exploring, developing,
interpreting and describing those art “words” to create their own masterpieces.
I provide an engaging, safe and artistically nurturing environment for all
students. The best part about being artists to me is that we can learn from our
mistakes-engaging and persisting when things get tough, exploring and taking
risks when trying something new, and develop our creativity.
year students will learn about different artists and artist techniques. They
will learn through exploration and practice how to master these skills and
think like historical artists. Students will be introduced to some of the more
familiar famous artists as well as some diverse artists coming from many
different eras of art, places in the world, and backgrounds. Students will also
learn to create art with many different forms of medium --acrylic paint,
charcoal, clay, watercolor, chalk pastels, oil pastels, and collage.
favorite part about being an art teacher is seeing students grow artistically
and academically. This year, we will work together to create our own works of
art as well as describe, interrupt and analyze other works of art! The art
projects will follow the NYS Visual and Media Arts Standards.
