Welcome to Ray Elementary Art  


About Me: 

I have earned my Bachelors in Fine Art at Harding University and my Masters in Education at UT Tyler.

This is my 5th year at Ray and my 14th year in education.  

I love to paint, sew, make all kinds of art.  My husband and I love watching movies and playing with our dog Blair.


Outline for the year: 

1st 9 Weeks: Line, Shape, and Space

2nd 9 Weeks: Color and Value

3rd 9 Weeks: Form and Texture

4th 9 Weeks: Principles of Design 


My classroom is what I call a choice-based classroom.  The student is treated as an artist.  They make choices that artists make like what to draw, what materials to use, etc.  This was something I introduced last year and am continuing thsi year.  The students love being able to pour their hearts into their artwork and create something meaningful to them.
