::  Welcome to Art!  ::


The 2016/17 school year marks my eighth at Imagine, which has
become like a second home.  When I'm not here teaching or working
in my classroom, I like to travel both 
in and out of country, especially
to spend time with family in France, and 
to visit art museums and
galleries.  I also enjoy listening to jazz, landscape 
design, 
and gardening at home in Louisville with Satchel cat.

::  ART GUILD OF IMAGINE FIRESTONE  ::

Art Guild, an elective class this year, is for any Imagine middle school student who is interested in promotion of the visual arts, both within
our school as well as in the surrounding community.  
Art Guild’s focus is student driven and can change year-to-year. The Guild is involved in a variety of projects throughout the year, including planning and hosting a middle school dance and making projects
for donation to the school's annual silent auction fundraiser.  Art Guild students will finish the year with a self chosen project or event.
