Mrs. Cowan's art Room

This year we will explore the 7 elements of art and how they are used on their own and together to make many different kinds of art. We will look for them in famous works and study how artists use them to create their very unique and varied styles. We will explore their use in our own art and learn how each of us is an artist if we just try.

We will explore many mediums this year including pastels, papier-mâché, clay, painting with tempra, watercolors, pencil sketching, and hopefully even some basic digital art!

Visit our online gallery to check out the projects we have been working on!

Students made their mark on the first day of school like Vashti in "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds. We made one giant dot from everyone's dot.

Mrs. Stephanie Cowan

I am new to teaching this year, excited to bring my love of art to the next generation! I am a 2007 graduate of the University of South Carolina with a Bachelors Degree in Studio Art. I live in Columbia with my husband and three children. My hope for this year is for every student find the artist inside themselves and not be afraid to let it out!
