At our after-school art program and art-integrated elementary school, we cherish the connections we create with our students and their families, which is why we love hosting events like this. Our community is more than just members; we're a big, creative family! πŸ’–

Art is essential to the existence, celebration and continuation of society. Life is about learning more and thinking clearer everyday. In my classroom I expect the best from my students and myself at all times. My students will not only be learning about art, they will be learning self-discipline, respect for others, self-confidence, development, and habits of thinking, learning and discovery. I plan to challenge and nurture the creative energy of students while fostering enthusiasm on their part for personal discovery.
