Mr. Michael Medina
I am the art teacher for New River Elementary School and am new to the DVUSD and Arizona in 2018. I taught art for 30 years in Colorado before coming to New River. I am also an artist who is looking forward to having more time to create my own art. Some of my interests include traveling, hiking, and gardening. I am looking forward to sharing my passion for the visual arts to the students at New River. My focus will be the elements of art: line, shape, color, texture, value, space and value. I am on campus on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Friday mornings.
