Mrs. Gertzman

Hello, students, parents, and art enthusiasts! I am thrilled to be back at our wonderful school. Those that are new to the school, my name is Susan Gertzman, and I am incredibly excited to embark on this creative journey with all of you.

With a background in Art Education at Arizona State University , I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our school. I believe that art is not just about drawing or painting; it is a means of expression, exploration, and personal growth. My goal is to cultivate a positive and inclusive learning environment where students feel empowered to embrace their unique artistic voices.

In my classroom, creativity will be nurtured, and imagination will flourish. I am dedicated to providing a well-rounded art education that encompasses various mediums, techniques, and art history. Through hands-on projects, students will have the opportunity to experiment with different materials, such as paints, clay, collage, and more. We will explore a wide range of artistic styles and cultural influences to broaden our understanding of the world around us.

Communication with parents and guardians is essential to supporting students' artistic growth. I will keep you informed about our curriculum, upcoming projects, and events through our school's website. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding your child's art education.

I am thrilled to embark on this journey with your children, as we discover the wonders of art together. Let's create a vibrant and inspiring environment where every student can find joy, self-expression, and endless possibilities through the world of art.

I look forward to meeting all of you and embarking on this artistic adventure at Norterra Canyon!
