::  Welcome to Art!  ::

The 2017/18 school year marks my ninth at Imagine.  
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 kittens Tulip & Simon.

There are many opportunities throughout the year to
in the art program, both at the school and
volunteer work that can be done from your home.

Art Guild, a year-long 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.

Fourth grade artists study the art of the Middle Ages in Europe and create decorative initial cap inspired by those of the medieval illuminated manuscripts.  Third grade art students begin a study of Native American art with the Plains and Obiway-inspired dreamcatchers.  Second graders begin the year creating expressive self portraits, portraying four different emotions in these unique portraits.  First grade artists also create self portraits, but moveable ones incorporating an interest of activity.  Kindergartners learn about many different types of lines and then create a crayon/watercolor resist painting inspired by Harold and his purple crayon.
