Mrs. Kasey Holt
Greetings!! My name is Kasey Holt and I am the Visual Art teacher at Nursery Road Elementary School-Arts Magnet! I am entering into my third year of teaching and I am so grateful to be working on another year with the amazing Champions at NRES-AM. I recently got married to my husband Ian in July of 2020! Hence the name change from Revels to Holt! Our son Finnegan will be turning one this year in September!
I graduated with honors from the University of South Carolina with a B.F.A in Art Education in December of 2017. In the Fall of 2017, I completed my student teaching placement here at NRES and then returned the following January for an exciting two week Artist Residency in ceramics. As a graduate of USC's Art Education program, I have an extensive background in Art History, Drawing, Painting, Figure, Printmaking, Bookmaking, Murals and collaborative works, Sculpture, Fabric Arts, Media, Wood Working, and my area of concentration: Ceramics (with a focus on functional thrown pots and bowls.)
In March of 2018, I was hired full-time as the Visual Art teacher and have been working diligently to provide our students with the best foundation in the Arts possible. Students who attend NRES-AM will be exposed to a variety of art styles, processess, and materials with a growth mindset emphasis on process over product. As the first and only Arts Magnet school porgram in District Five, we strive to lead the Midlands in Art Education by providing our students with unique Arts opportunites not offered at any other Public Elementary School. Our newest additions to the program are five table top pottery wheels.
Each year, NRES-AM participates in two Art shows. One is held annually at the District Office, while the other is held at Irmo High School in the spring. More information on the dates and times of these shows will go out as those events approach.
If you have any questions or need to reach out me, my email address is listed below! Please feel free to join your student's class at any point in the year and be sure to attend the Cultural Arts Festival at the end of the year!
