Mr. Michael Medina

I am the art teacher for New River Elementary School.  In 2018, I moved to Arizona.  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 form.  I am on campus all day Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Friday (afternoon).
