I believe that God is the ultimate artist! Each and every one of us, along with the world we live in, was created by Him! We are all creative in some way (cooking, problem solving, writing, decorating, crafting, drawing, musically, performing, etc.) and it is up to us to find our creativity! It is a gift from God that should be opened, used, and enjoyed!
I feel so incredibly blessed to be able to come to school everyday and share my love of art, and also my faith, with the students at All Saints Catholic School!!
In Art class, students learn about the Elements and Principles of Art (which are the basis for creating art), past and present artists, art styles, how to create different types of art (2 dimensional and 3 dimensional), and also learn new concepts and discussion techniques to help them see the world through the eyes of an artist! Students will also participate in cross-curricular assignments throughout the school year. Our Catholic faith is also embraced often in Art class when creating 'praying in color' or through various classwork and/or homework assignments.
