I am in my 15th year of teaching Art and my 5th here at Starmount Middle. I am a graduate of Wingate University where I studied Fine art and Computer Graphics and played softball. Every year I look forward to pulling out creativity in students and showing them how enjoyable art can be.
I cover the 7 Elements of Art and hit on the Principles of Design as well. I like to work a lot on drawing from real life and shading to help students improve over all drawing skills. Throughout the year I try to expose students to new art materials such as clay, printmaking, fibers, and sculpture. We will learn about some artists and time periods in art history while relating it all in to their own current interests.
It is extremely helpful if students could contribute a
- Pack of pencils
- Pack of black sharpies
