About the Art Room

The art room is a place for learning.  In the art room our goal is to learn how to work. Without a proper work ethic students are not able to compete in a global marketplace and be a dependable member of society.  A strong work ethic and a passion for one's work is something that we strive for in the art room.  The ability to start a project of any kind and see it all the way to its completion brings with it satisfaction of a job well done.  My greatest hope is that each of my students will become a responsible, productive member of our society.  The number one goal is self-sufficiency.  If a student can think independently using creative thoughts and processes while still working and collaborating as a team with others then they are a success.
