Welcome to Mrs. Kim's Art Room! I am the art teacher for both Fitzmorris Elementary and Coal Creek Canyon K-8. This will be my fourth year of teaching elementary art and I am very excited to be working with both communities. I love helping students imagine and create artwork every day!
I am originally from Michigan but my family and I have lived in Colorado for ten years. When I am not teaching, I love hiking, swimming, reading, painting watercolors, traveling and spending time with my 3 children and husband.
Student art from Fitzmorris and Coal Creek Canyon K-8 is now being displayed in the childrens’ section of the Arvada Library in Old Town Arvada. Congratulations to the following students whose artwork was chosen for the month of April!
