Coppell, TX (CISD)

WELCOME! In our art room we learn creative ways to think critically about the world around us. Our society moves at the speed of light. A wise man I once knew said, "Creativity is the future." A simple statement yes but one that reverberates truth and logic. We would all agree, our children will be our legacy. Mix the two, and VOILA! They will be unstoppable.

On this site, you will find a variety of things including but not limited to, artwork, art advocacy, updates on school activities, advocacy and yes, more advocacy. Three philosophies I believe in that strongly guide my teaching: 1. Art is inherently cross-curricular, multi-cultural and global. 2. Art educators must continue to advocate the importance of art on a minute-by-minute basis. 3. We are ALL responsible for the educational impact art has on our world. I hope this site continues the initiative taken every day by thousands of passionate art teachers around the globe.

Fine Art Field Trip

This year we visited the DMA. We took a docent led tour of Art of the Americas, interacted with art in the C3 center, ate in the garden and sketched in the sculpture garden. It was a beautiful day filled with amazing artwork. I've attached a link so that you may get an idea of what the C3 is like. PLEASE take your students this summer to view more exhibits. 
It's FREE and airconditioned! :)



 AND we're Pooped!
