Welcome to Art Class!
This will be a great year of learning and exploration of artists and art materials. Each grade will try drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, collage, and other media. Each grade will also make classroom connections with science, social studies, and math. I want each student to love art and the possibilities that it offers us! Art teaches creativity, problem solving, higher level thinking skills, collaboration, and communication.
I am excited to get to know all of the students at Nazareth Elementary and to share all that art has to offer!

This is my first year at Nazareth Elementary! I have been teaching for over five years around the Rochester area. I have a background in mixed media art, as well as drawing and painting. I show my own artwork around New York State. I am a Rochester native and attended Catholic schools in Rochester. I love all different styles of artwork, historical as well as contemporary.
