Welcome to Art!
Hello Aspen Students and Families!
I am the new Art Teacher here at Aspen. I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Art Education K-12 with a Studio Arts minor from the University of Minnesota Duluth. I have an additional teaching license certificate in Elementary Education K-6 from Hamline University. I have completed my last state exam and I will soon be licensed to teach Elementary Education K-6, in addition to Art Education K-12.
This year we will be combining the Core Knowledge curriculum with the Minnesota State Standards, student choice, and various methods that help students learn artistic behaviors. Students in each grade will be expected to bring a sketchbook and pencil to each class.
I look forward to the engaging, dynamic, exciting year we will share together!
Here is a fun website/store I highly recommend!
Here are general outlines connected to the state standards that demonstrate what we will be covering over the course of the year:
