Welcome to the Visual Art Program at
Anne M. Dorner Middle School
“Art has become separated from the mainstream of life for most adults, but it is not so for children. Artistic expression arises naturally in children’s development and is an effective mode of thought and communication for them. Thus, the primary goal of art education is to help children develop their ability to create and respond to meaning in visual imagery.”
-Nancy R. Smith, Experience and Art
As an art teacher at Anne M. Dorner Middle School I strive to meet students at their developmental level and give them opportunities to explore materials, make connections, represent personal experiences, and acquire skills and confidence to express themselves visually. Students will be on a journey to discover who they are as artists through the investigation of drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, sculpture and mixed media.
