About the Art Program

  • My goal as an artist and educator is to inspire every student, energize their creativity and support them as they express themselves with confidence. During Art class, my students will study a variety of cultures, artists, and works of art while they explore numerous techniques and mediums. I partner my lessons with other academic subjects to strengthen academic skills through visual and tactile learning.

    In addition to teaching the K through 8th grade Art classes, I am an Adjunct Professor at Rowan College at Burlington County.  I may have the opportunity to teach your student in the future as a college student!

    This is my fifth year as the Art teacher at Woodlynne School and my fourteenth year of teaching Art. I love being creative and truly enjoy making art with your kids. This year, I am ready to rise to the challenge of creating fun and engaging projects that have your students thinking from both sides of the brain.  I am confident we can be successful working from home and sharing virtually.

    It's going to be another great year!
