I am Malia Cadle, Your child’s Art Teacher. I graduated from California Lutheran University with a degree and credential in Fine Art. I have also received a Masters of Education in Teaching from CLU and hold a CTE credential in the Arts, Media Entertainment Industry.

I have a passion for the Arts and am excited about working with young Artists and their creative and ever developing styles. I am dedicated to inspiring your child as we explore the wonderful world of art through diverse techniques.

I believe that Art is an essential part of today’s total curriculum. It aides and supports other subjects as well as molds your child into a well rounded person. Art pushes and challenges the creative side of the brain. I create a safe and comfortable environment for my students to be creative and trust their instincts. I give them the basic techniques and the freedom to use these to form their own unique styles. I teach them that Art is social, communicative, therapeutic, and also problem solving. My artists are challenged creatively and face choices every day to open up and share their individual talents. Together we will begin to master techniques. I hope to inspire them and give them confidence to believe in themselves and the art that they create. My goal at the end of our time together is that every student believes that he or she is an ARTIST!

I look forward to a fun-filled semester with your child creating and discussing the world of Art. Thank you for entrusting your children’s creative and artistic growth with me. I take this responsibility very seriously. I also look forward to meeting you. The Art studio is always open to you- the patrons of the Arts at MCMS.

Van Gogh Landscape sketches

Check out some COOL information about Van Gogh. We will create a painting, inspired by HIS STYLE and landscape paintings. Use the requirements on slide #6 to create TWO sketches in your sketchbook "paint sketches page". This is where you will decide your composition and layout! We will move to our canvases and play with paint next week!
