Welcome!

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.

Awesome Artists!

After artwork is removed from the Vonita White Administration Building you can find it in our building just outside the front office. I encourage you to take a picture of your child with their artwork both at the administration building and here on campus. 
It is quite an accomplishment! 


District’s Monthly Art Show
Three CMSE artists’ works are selected every month to display in our district’s administration building!           The Coppell ISD Vonita White Administration Building is where the artwork is on exhibition.
The work will be on display until February 13th.
Monday – Friday from 8:00 – 4:00.

Afterward, you can find it hanging here at CMSE  outside of the front office.  
These students were selected based on several categories including but not limited to the quality of artwork, craftsmanship, having a positive attitude and consideration in planning of their artwork.
Congratulations Bronco Artists!  We are all very proud of you.
