I have an opportunity to work with 7-12 grade students in the area of the visual arts. This teaching opportunity allows me the chance to provide these artists with a program that will challenge and teach them the importance of art in society.
As an middle and high school art educator, my main priorities have been to allow students the chance to develop their fine motor skills, express themselves visually and learn about the elements and history of art.
When I found the website www.artsonia.com, I knew this was yet another key component in my current curriculum. This website has also allowed my art program to take on an additional form of communication with families and community members by using technology and the internet.
