Art & Mentor

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time”. Thomas Merton “Art is a part of every aspect of our lives” – Karen McDonald. I am currently the A2 Virtual visual art teacher. Before A2V I worked at Carpenter, Bryant, Mitchell, and Pattengill Elementary as a visual art teacher. It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to be a part of a dynamic and supportive team. Through the arts, I have been able to teach and create meaningful art with children for over 30 years. Teaching art from various platforms of learning has been a challenge as well as an exhilarating journey. The arts allow individuals to find a sense of self-expression. I believe teaching art will be lifelong learning for me to share with others.
