Hello and Welcome to ART!
My name is Katie Dougherty, I will be teaching art this year. I am really looking forward to working with the students and families here at Colonel Johnston Elementary. This year in art I will be focusing on well known artists and activities that help students understand art mediums like painting, drawing, and sculpture. I want students to gain the ability to speak fluently about the art that they are seeing and creating.
A little bit of background on me: I am a native Arizona girl who grew up in Bisbee. I have lived in New Mexico, Colorado, and Hawaii. This will be my 5th year teaching, but my 1st year teaching art. I have a BS in kinesiology and a minor in art. I obtained my MA in elementary education in 2010.
I am really looking forward to a great year with your students. I welcome parents and guardians to come and help out. Feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please check back frequently as I will post pictures of completed projects.
