Hello and Welcome!

I am glad you stopped to learn a little bit about our Visual Art program here at HMS.

A little about me first. I love creating artwork, viewing other artists work, and especially, teaching art to young people.  Not only do I take e pleasure in sharing my knowledge about art history and the process of creating it but I want my students to experience art and understand how much it affects their lives.
