"Viewing paintings engages a number of different regions in the brain, suggesting art appreciation is a natural biological process, according to the report in the June issue of the journal Brain and Cognition. The study found that paintings activated areas of the brain involved in vision, pleasure, memory, recognition, and emotions, in addition to systems that underlie the conscious processing of new information to give it meaning."

This is my fifth year with Richfield School District. I graduated from Mount Mary College, Milwaukee, WI with my degree in Art Education. I have numerous years of student teaching through the college as well as teaching summer school and art for home-school students.
I am instructing students grades K through Middle school, at both Plat and Richfield Elementary Schools.
I will showcase students' artwork though out the year. The students will learn the basic art terms, techniques, and how to use a variety of art materials. The middle school students will be required to hand in sketchbook assignments and they will have the basic understanding of the Elements of Art and Design.
They will get messy, learn, and have fun!
