Hello students and families!
I grew up in Acushnet and have been teaching art at Ford Middle School for over 20 years. I love our beautiful art room and hope you do, too!
My favorite things to teach about are famous artists and art history. My favorite supplies are watercolor pencils and Model Magic Clay.
When I am not in school, I love to illustrate books, paint, sing, read, garden, go to concerts and museums, and hang out at home with my Welsh Corgi mix, Monroe.
I started taking my first art lessons when I was about 10 years old, went to college for art, and still like to study new things even today.
My best advice for my students is to practice drawing all the time. It’s the basis for expressing yourself and planning art works.
Having a sketch book around so you can draw when you are inspired is the first step.
To see some of my art, feel free to visit my art studio site, or follow my art studio on Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter!
I hope you love art class as much as I do and learn a little, too.
Have a great year!
