Welcome!


I am so excited to be returning to Rogers Park and Airport Heights this year! We will be exploring a variety of topics related to art history, aesthetics and criticism, art careers, and studio processes according to the following curriculum themes:

K - Art and Me
1st - Art In My World
2nd - Creating From Within Myself
3rd - Art and the Environment
4th- Art From Many Cultures
