I am a pencil in the hand of God. - Mother Theresa

Meet Mrs. Babbles
Mrs. Mary Babbles has been the art teacher at Holy Family School since the fall of 1996. Prior to teaching, Mrs. Babbles worked as an Art Director and Graphic Designer at local advertising agencies. She is a graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Communications Design. After the birth of her daughter, Mrs. Babbles began teaching. Teaching allowed her more time with her family while offering the opportunity to share and instill her love of art with her students. "Nothing is more rewarding than the look on a student's face when they are pleased with the artwork that they have created. I have the luxury of teaching our students throughout their years at Holy Family. I get to watch them learn, grow and develop their God-given talents. All children may not be naturally "artistic" but all children are naturally imaginative and creative. Nurturing and encouraging that creative spark is what I enjoy most about teaching - that along with the hundreds of amazing students and wonderful families I have met at Holy Family School."

For the 2020-2021 school year, all students at Holy Family School will have Art class with Mrs. Babbles in their classrooms. 3-day/5-day Pre-K students will have class every other week. Kindergarten through Grade 6 will have a weekly class. All in-school classes are 30-minutes long this year. Lessons for virtual learners in Kindergarten through Grade 6 will be posted to Google Classroom. In addition to learning about the elements of art (color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value) and the principles of design (balance, unity, rhythm, proportion, and emphasis), the children are encouraged to explore their imaginations, develop their creativity, and expand their problem-solving skills.
