Welcome to Mater Dei Art. I am looking forward to teaching art at Mater Dei as we start our sixth year. This is my eleventh-year teaching art and it never gets old! I am anxious to get started working with the students.

The Importance of Art

  • Students work within the creative process: conceive, develop, organize, share, interpret, evaluate, respond, relate.
  • Art enhances communication skills.
  • Art builds confidence and perseverance.
  • Art sets creativity free to explore new perspectives.
  • Art encourages collaboration in problem solving.
  • Art encourages global awareness and social responsibility.
  • The benefits of art are LIMITLESS!


Classroom Needs:

  • Sharpened pencil, good eraser, glue sticks, and an open creative mind!
  • Students in grades three through eight may also bring their personal thick and thin colored markers, as well as colored pencils.
  • The Art Room is always in need of paper towels, baby wipes, and tissues. We welcome all donations.
