Mrs. Hope

This year is going to be EPIC!

We are going to build an EPIC (Elements & Principles Integration Curriculum)year by focused units of study around the Elements and Principles of art, with spotlights on academic Integration and Cultures. Each month a different Element and/or Principle will be the focus. A sampling from all of the grades work will be displayed in the blue hall so that when you visit, you can see how we build off of these foundations.

Art work will come home monthly and those selected for art shows will have a certificate in place of their work. Have no fear these will get returned to the artist!

Check back monthly to get a sneak peak of our EPIC adventure!

Creatively yours,

Mrs. Hope

I have taught Visual Art for many years in District Five. I have taught Visual Arts at Lake Murray Elementary for 8 years. I am a certified K-12 Visual Arts Teacher with 28+ years of work experience including middle and high school positions. I teach an integrated art curriculum that often incorporates other subjects into my art classroom especially language arts, social studies and math. To know about history is to know about art history since art often reflects what is happening in our lives.
 
I teach Discipline-Based Art Education that includes:
 
Art Theory - what artist's think about art
Art History - art created throughout different time periods
Art Production - the making of art
Art Criticism - talking about our art or the work of other artists
 
Before my teaching career, I was a graphic designer and illustrator for a national computer firm. My rich work history has allowed me a unique and rewarding experience. I really enjoy sharing all kinds of creative experiences with your child and seeing the discoveries they make in the art classroom. I love my job!
