Hello, I am the art teacher in the high school. My greatest satisfaction is igniting students' passion for the arts. My classroom is a heaven of solitude from academic subjects. Students experience success and discover that nothing is impossible, if you try. The energy level is at "Peak Alert" when no one is talking, no one is moving around, and the music is playing a soft melody; students are totally right-braining it. Then the bell rings, and everyone is scrambling to get to the next class. This is ART.
My favorite quote is by Albert Einstein - " Logic will get you to A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere." To me this speaks volume about the world of art.... without imagaination where we would be in every aspect of our lives?

HS TEACHING SCHEDULE / SEMESTER 1
ART 8 WEEK OF SEPT
ART 8 -WEEK LAST WEEK OF SEPT
HIGHLIGHTS OF WEEK...
Students learned about S.I.N.A where Alan Abel created nationwide hoax and how 50,000. people bought into the idea and then we related it today... "fake-news" and being the savvy vs being gullible. Big question that came from that article was how NOT to be gullible and believe everything you read?
Another highlight is, "did you know that newspaper as it is not very strong, but if you roll like a tube and tight as a straw it becomes incredibility strong and durable...? Hence we are weaving it into a 3/d container... then it on to clay
POTTERY ... next projects are favorite cup and NoN-cup
- ARCHITECTURAL TILES 1 & 2 will be made in the art room
- glazing begins on our whistles... hip hip hurray!
