This is my third year at Pine Valley Elementary! I grew up in Buffalo, NY, and have always loved painting, drawing, and making things. Teaching art at the elementary school level has offered me the opportunity to share my love of all things art with my students. Luckily for me, they seem to share my enthusiasm for trying new things, learning about artists, and treating the classroom as their own studio space. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our cat, reading, baking, and traveling.
Welcome to the Elementary Art Page! All students in grades UPK-6th grade have art twice a week. All year long, our amazing artists are engaged in making art, learning how to properly use and care for materials, and discovering the multitude of ways art can be used to communicate ideas.If you can, please make sure your student has an art smock! We tend to get messy...the perfect smocks are simply old t-shirts from someone bigger, like a parent or older sibling, that will fit right over your student's clothes.
