About Me - ART FROM HOME IDEAS!

With our stay-at-home learning I wanted to provide you guys with some links for art projects. If you go to the "Links" tab in the box to the right I will update with Youtube's, online lessons, and anything else I can find for you to fill you time and your brain. Use this opportunity to explore the things you always wanted to learn about. Keep a journal of your ideas and what you've learned. This is a wonderful time for you to take control of your own learning. Read, draw, paint, research history that you find interesting, go outside and take pictures as the Spring blooms are happening. There are a million ways for you to keep yourselves engaged and your mind entertained. We miss you all and can't wait to see you back in school. Until then, I challenge you to do something every day that increases your knowledge of the world. Have fun, share your discoveries with us and with each other. We love you all! 

 

I have created a Remind for FLMS Art. I will hold office hours on weekdays during regular school hours. Please let me know what you're working on or if you would like some help to find information or directions on a topic. I look forward to hearing from all of you!

During my 8th grade year my family moved back to Tennessee from Alabama and I enrolled at North Middle School in Lenoir City. I felt like an outsider most of that school year, and the art program offered at North Middle became a refuge for me. I had never been in a school that offered a specific class in art. At 8th grade graduation that year I was presented with an art award. It was completely unexpected and I still have the framed certificate. That was the first time I really thought about art being something I could do with my life. After graduating from Maryville College, I used my art degree in a variety of jobs including professional photographer, graphic designer, and in marketing. All the things I learned in those jobs seems to come together in art education. I have so enjoyed seeing my students learn to create and enjoy art.
