Aloha from Ms. Goralski!Hello to my Sunset Ridge family! I am Ms. Goralski (Ms. G) and I started teaching at Sunset Ridge in 2006. I left to open Sonoran Foothills in 2015 and was so happy to return to Sunset Ridge in 2019. My son was one of the first Hawks to attend Sunset Ridge in 2003 when there were only 235 students.
This school year is going to be special. It's an opportunity for us to realize how important the magic of art can be in our world to help us cope with stress, share our experiences with each other and just have fun. My intention for every art zoom and art project is that it brings some form of humanity and calm to all of us. Please remember to always just have fun when your creating and turn off your inner critic. I also hope that some of these projects can be a form of connecting with your family allowing everyone to maybe discuss art and do some art together.

Art is my life. Art is in everything we do. My philosophy in teaching art to to help students grasp their own creativity and the impact that visual literacy can have in their lives. I embrace STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART, and Math).
“Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”
With that philosophy I hope to inspire your student to become an Renaissance person who can connect all content areas creativity and become a true creative spirit. Not everyone will be good at drawing (at first), but EVERYONE can create and enjoy the process of creation.
I grew up in North Dakota, have LOTS of dogs, one cat, 8 grandkids, 1 son and 3 step kids and 2 birds. I am married to the love of my life, Walter, who is an author. Together we take care of our dog pack and stay busy in our garden. We USED to visit art museums throughout the world and spend a lot of time in bookstores and really look forward to the day when we can do that again.
I hope that I can inspire you and your family to bring art into your every day life. Please do not hesitate to connect with me via email at email@example.com
