The month of August will focus on an overview of the IB Learner Profile. How can artists show these traits while creating art?
After the overview, the month of August will focus on being knowledgeable. Students will be creating art using our artists of the months from last year. (we will not repeat them this year. )They will be reviewed and discussed. Students can also share their own ideas of what they are excited to learn about in art this year.
It's going to be a great year!!

Art Classes and PYP
Classes will focus on the elements and principles of design. They will also focus on the national core visual arts standards which focus on creating, presenting, responding and connecting art. Lessons will also include past and modern artists to help children learn art history. The lessons will be consistent with Franklin's IB curriculum.
I was raised in Nevada. I graduated from the University of Nevada-Reno with my BA. I then graduated with a dual Masters at Notre Dame de Namur University in California. I worked in Miami as an Art Therapist for 12 years. We lived in Peru for 2 years where I began teaching. We then lived in Reno, NV for 2 years, where I taught 3rd grade. This is my third year at Franklin as the art teacher and I love it!!
