Art is healing! 

    Hello to my Sunset Ridge family!  I am Ms. Goralski (Ms. G) and I started teaching at Sunset Ridge in 2006.  I left to open Sonoran Foothills in 2015 and was so happy to return to my "home" school" in 2019.  My son was one of the first Hawks to attend Sunset Ridge in 2003 when there were only 235 students. 

    If you want to see my family and furry friends - there's a link here.

    Art is my life.  Art is in everything we do.  My philosophy in teaching art to to help students grasp their own creativity and the impact that visual literacy can have in their lives.  I embrace STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART, and Math).

    “Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”
    ― Leonardo da Vinci

    With that philosophy I hope to inspire your student to become an Renaissance person who can connect all content areas creativity and become a true creative spirit.  Not everyone will be good at drawing (at first), but EVERYONE can create and enjoy the process of creation.  

    I grew up in North Dakota, have LOTS of dogs, one cat, 8 grandkids, 1 son and 3 step kids.  I am married to the love of my life, Walter, who is an author.  Together we take care of our dog pack, visit art museums throughout the world and spend a lot of time in bookstores.  

    I hope that I can inspire you and your family to bring art into your every day life.  Please do not hesitate to connect with me.  


    I also want you to look at our amazing online art gallery.  I will be sharing info on how to upload your own work next week.
