About Miss Donna
Welcome to Seward Art class with Donna! I am very excited to continue to explore and create art with all Seward artists! I attended the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and Augsburg University, where I earned a Bachelor’s in Art Education degree. I grew up in the small town of Hillsborough, North Carolina. My earliest and best memories are of making art with my mother. When I am making art, I am always happy. I decided to become an art teacher to share my love and passion for art with our youth. This will be my 8th year of teaching art at Seward Montessori. I am excited to see what this year brings. I draw my artistic inspiration from nature, my amazing students, and my beautiful family. I also enjoy gardening, and drawing what grows in my garden.
About Art Class
In Seward Art class, questions, curiosity, creativity, and unique ideas are encouraged. We will explore the world of visual art together. We will focus on developing artistic skills and techniques, and learn to recognize and use the elements of art and principles of design. Students will learn how to use and care for basic art making materials. We will learn about artists from different time periods, cultures, and parts of the world. Students will also develop creative skills and practice verbal and non- verbal expression.
