ABOUT ART CLASSES: Students learn about the Elements of Art, artists from different cultures and time periods, and work in different media such as drawing, painting, and sculpture. I believe each student has his or her own artistic abilities. I encourage my students to engage with creative thinking, to appreciate art, and to discuss art. 

We believe within the art department in Piscataway that the visual arts play an intrinsic part in our everyday lives, as they are vital to our learning and our well-being.
The Expectations and Rules of the Art Room are linked on the left as well as clearly posted in the art room.

ABOUT STUDENT WORK: Students make their own art portfolios in the beginning of the school year and keep most of what they create in their art portfolio until June. This is because we display artwork all throughout the year!  Our art shows, exhibits and displays will be announced during the course of the school year. 

You are welcome to check out the Photo Gallery link on the left to take a look at what 4th and 5th graders have created in past years. As of 2017, all student artwork is now featured on our Instagram page!

ABOUT ME: I received my Masters in Fine Art Education from Kean University and my BFA in Graphic Design from Marywood University. Before I became a teacher, I worked as a graphic designer. I also have minor studies in Art History and Dance. I studied art history in Florence, Italy and lived there for a summer! My favorite period in art history is the Renaissance. After school I teach at a dance studio and a yoga studio, as well as the Kids Yoga Club here at Arbor School!
