In Visual Arts, students Pre-K through 5 will learn principles of design and elements of design in art education, as well as utilize the NYC Blueprint for teaching and learning in visual arts. This will include art history, teaching a variety of materials and methods, as well as helping our students achieve self-confidence and creativity. The ongoing philosophy of risk taking, open-ended discussion, and helping will continue to be implemented. In addition, I will continue to coordinate museum tours, assist teachers on projects and displays, participate in exhibitions and programs, and create banners. I will also be writing grants for art educational materials and programs.
