    Hi Jaguars! I am so excited to be one of your art teachers here at Sam Jamison Middle School!  Art is such a fun and therapeutic outlet, as well as an important part of our history.  In my class, students will learn about the Elements of Art & Principals of Design, and explore and analyze various famous artists and art movements.  We will also use our growing artistic knowledge and skill to create a variety of artworks, and even participate in several different art contests throughout the year.  Be sure to check Canvas daily for art announcements, daily assignments, project lessons and class updates.  Have fun creating, stay safe, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

     My conference time is Monday-Friday 11:05-11:50.
