Finding the Creative In Every Child

       I believe that the experience that each child has in art, in their early years, will dramatically impact the way that they will view the arts for the rest of their life. This is why the art room should be a colorful, creative, nurturing place for every child, not just the star artists. This is the standard that I set for myself as the Elementary Art Teacher, here at RCS. Each child will have the chance to explore a variety of media throughout their years in my art room. Painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, collage...these are just a few of the areas that we will explore. Each child will have the chance to exhibit their work throughout the school and our community.
