I am so grateful to be an art educator at Metea Valley High School. As an artist, I was taught in the classic tradition of painting, drawing and sculpting.  The skill of art making is totally teachable and learnable!  Watching  students learn how to create art, build on successes then grow artistically, is incredibly rewarding!
