Art is Awesome and Important!
Elements and Principles of Art guide the Artist and help to organize visual information to communicate most effectively. Contemporary Art includes many themes and forms of Art which need to be addressed seperately from this one form of Art Education. Today Art programs encompass Visual Culture to examine more of Art.

I have studied both Art Education and Fine Art. Northern Illinois University's Art Education has prepared me to teach art from Kindergarten through twelveth grade.While volunteering in the Art Institute of Chicago's supplimentary program, I learned I loved getting kids excited about art and decided to make it my second career. I am a recent transplant from outside Chicago and am excited to be working at Sunset Ridge sharing my love of Art.
Embrace the Day.
