Hello! Welcome to Art! My name is Mrs. Leaphart. I have taught Visual Art for many years in District Five. I have taught elementary art at Lake Murray Elementary for over thirteen years. I am a certified K-12 Visual Art Teacher, Graphic Designer and Illustrator with 29+ years of experience including middle and high school positions.
In art class I teach the Elements and Principles of Design. Some of these include Line, Shape, Color, Texture, Value and Contrast. I thoughtfully plan and create lessons and projects that follow SC Art Education standards. Art students will learn how to use different art elements and how to combine them together sucessfully in works of art. In addition, students will be introduced to new art materials and techniques. Student artists will make discoveries, solve artistic problems that are meaningful for them and create unique works of art. I am looking forward to seeing my art students thinking, learning and creating in art class this school year.
