Studying art and art history, elements and principles of art and design, as well as creating studio projects are ALL essential to a well-rounded middle school art experience. Embrace all of it and allow it to add to your life experience. Art will foster your creative thinking and problem solving skills, fine motor skills (how well you can use your hands) and increase your awareness of others and your surrounding world. Art is on your shoes, your clothing, your backpack and all around you. Someone designed your clothing. Someone drew and designed the building/room in you which you sit presently; someone designed where you live and the apps on your phone. It is everywhere! Whether you seek to become a better artist or just gain a greater understanding of art and its language and historical components, I am here to help you attain those goals.
