Welcome to Art!

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

I have the pleasure of teaching Visual Art to all children in grades Pre-K through 5th at Gresham Elementary School and 3rd-5th grades at Irondale Community School. I have enjoyed my position as an ART teacher for 30 years.

I want to extend to you and your child my warmest welcome into my classroom. 2017 will make my 31st year of teaching Art, so to many of you, I am a familiar face. I am very excited about working with your child!

This year in Art, your child will be doing amazing things. We'll learn about color theory, painting, drawing techniques, and printing. All the while, I'll be pulling in math, languages and social studies connections for some sneaky cross-curricular learning. 

I thank you for taking the time to read my newsletter. I hope it has helped you become familiar with our Art program here at Gresham Elementary School.
