Welcome to the PCCS Art web page! I am looking forward to another great year teaching Art and while I am so happy to be back in the Art Room after teaching from a cart during the pandemic. Seeing students again in the art room has been so exciting and I am thrilled to be doing some in depth art pieces that incorporate painting, clay, sculpture and various mediums

As we continue our Art education at PCCS, students will be working on not only producing art but looking at important figures and topics through art history. My goal is to engage students in reflective conversations and responses to art and the world around them. In the same way that not every Science class is a Lab activity, some art classes may be spent learning about art history, concepts, techniques and not necessarily times when students are in the act of producing art pieces.
Since some classes (Kindergarten, 6th-8th Grade) are only being seen once a week it is important to be present and prompt to class. If there are any technical issues or conflicts that arise please email me or encourage your child to visit me during Office Hours to check in and get caught up.
For your convenience, here is my schedule with the times I see each grade.
I look forward to another great year at PCCS! If you have questions, concerns or suggestions please reach out. It is my hope that we can all work together as a community to help each other out in these difficult times. Please know that I am here to help and to be an encouraging, kind presence in your child’s life. I do not want to be a source of stress or anxiety for anyone and am beyond willing to work with everyone to make sure that they have a successful Art education experience.
