Welcome to my site! This will be my 15th year teaching elementary art at Minersville School District. I recieved both my B.S Degree in Art Education/Minor in Crafts (specializing in ceramics), along with my M.Ed in Art Education at Kutztown University. I am originally from Northumberland County. I am a mother of two 7 and 10 year old boys and one dog, named Buddy.
I hope you and your family are doing well during these unusual circumstances. Our students and their health and well-being are certainly on my mind during these challenging weeks. Please join the Elementary Art Smart Facebook page. There you will find additional art lessons, activities, and fun things to do with your children during this time!
I have provided weekly planned instruction art lessons assorted by grade level. Participation is strongly encouraged and will be noted. Most of the lessons I provided use very minimal art materials and resources. However, if you do not have something at home, feel free to supplement whatever materials you do. If you or your child would like to do something else for the planned week, please visit Other Art Lessons at Home. In addition, I have also listed some wonderful websites that parents could utilize with their children. Feel free to privately email or dojo me with any questions or concerns you might have. Most importantly dont forget to share your childs artwork privately on Dojo or on my Elementary Art Smart Facebook page. I look forward to seeing their masterpieces!
