Welcome! 

I have been teaching art at Highland Junior since the school opened 16 years ago.  

I teach 7th grade Art 'Mini Classes' which are 9 weeks in length.  This is a basic introduction to art. We focus on shorter projects using a variety of media.  All lessons are taught with a focus on 'The Element of Design.'

I also teach 8th grade 'Introduction to Art' classes.  These classes are a semester in length and also focus on 'The Elements of Design.'  Projects are more extensive and 'Art History' and 'Art Criticism' become introduced as the students experiment with various media.


 

(short class description)

I have been teaching in Gilbert Public Schools since 1993 and am also a Professional Artist.  I have also taught adult classes at Mesa Arts Center for the past several years.
