• Hello and Welcome to the Anthem School Art Page!

    Mrs. Young and Family

    My name is Kathryn Young and I am the new K-8 art teacher here at Anthem School. My family just moved to Arizona this past October and up until then I’ve lived in Maryland all of my life.  I graduated from Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania in 2005 with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Graphic Design.  I worked for ten years at the University of Maryland hospital for the Department of Emergency Medicine in their finance department.  I had various roles there in the department and lent my graphic design skills to design various logos, advertisements, and brochures over the years.  I decided to go back to school and received my Masters in Teaching and K-12 art certification at Loyola University Maryland in 2017. In my spare time I enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband and two children. I also love photography, cooking, movies and anything hands-on that is creative.

    The art classroom often gets overlooked when it comes to volunteers but we could really use them. If you are interested in volunteering in the art room, please email me at kathryn.young@dvusd.org.

    In addition to donations of time, we also look for donations of items you may already have around the house.  These items can include: washed plastic containers (yogurt cups, coffee cans, etc.), newspapers/magazines, old craft supplies that you don’t use anymore (fabric scraps, yarn, beads, etc.), jigsaw puzzels (24/48/100 pieces), and Play-Doh.  We could also use tissues, hand lotion (unscented), ziplock baggies of all sizes, and black Sharpies.
