Welcome to our visual arts class! I am truly excited to have all of you join me for a year of learning and I look forward to getting to know each one of you. If you want to know a little bit about me, click on the picture below:
I wanted to share this video, “What Students Really Need to Hear” by Chase Mielke. It was shown to me during my induction with ACPS and I found it inspiring and real; as it truly speaks as to how I feel about my students. So for all my new students, previous students, and fellow teachers I wanted to gift you with his spoken word. Maybe some or all of it will resonate with you as it has me.
Get ready to be immersed in the artistic process, push your creative boundaries, take a few risks, discover your inner artist, create some art and most importantly, experience one of the most fundamental aspects of what it is to be a part of human race.
There is little that shapes the human experience as profoundly and pervasively as creativity. Creativity drives progress in every human endeavor, from the arts to the sciences, business, and technology.
