    Welcome to the CrossRoads Art webpage!  I am not sure what I love more: teaching, art, or CrossRoads!  I am very excited to have the privilege to teach your child and I look forward to getting to know both you and your student. 


    Art is a semester course designed to give students a well-rounded art education based on the four parts of Discipline-Based Art Education (in no specific order):

    1)   Art Production

    2)   Art History

    3)   Art Criticism/Analysis, and

    4)   Aesthetic Awareness.

    Not only do students need to learn how to create artwork, but it is equally important that they study the artists who came before them and discuss and evaluate their artwork in order to improve one's personal artwork.  The goal of this course is to broaden students’understanding and appreciation of art media, art movements and artists in order to have a greater awareness of the world around them.
