    Inside the Art Studio



    Welcome Students and Parents!  I am very excited to be joining the Swimming River community this year. 


    My mission is to guide and encourage students as they develop as artists and creative individuals.  When students enter my classroom, they are artists.  All they need to be successful is the willingness to be open to new experiences, the courage to experiment, and the ability to adapt and problem solve when the unexpected happens.  Through reflection, I hope that they become more self-aware and discover the creative outlet(s) that suit them best.  This year, I plan to focus on the elements of art and the principles of design and how these components work in union to create aesthetically pleasing works of art.  Students will explore traditional media and discover new, innovative ways to view and utilize these materials.
