TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Art Makes U Smart grew from a combined 12 years of teaching art in classrooms at Earth's, a K - 5 science magnet school. We created our lessons so that anyone can teach them. They relate to the curricumlum, NGSS, and Common Core Standards, and build techniques based on the elements of art. We partner with The Discovery Center to bring our art and science outreach program into schools. We also partner with the Pacon paper company. You will find our lessons under Learn-It-by-Art on the Pacon website. Pacon features and teaches our lesson plans at the National Art Education Association conferences. We are a professional artist and designer with science backgrounds that enjoy using our skills in education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teaching art so that learning is accessible and enjoyable for all students. Creating lessons for teachers or volunteers alike so that they may do the same. Our lessons are visually informative Powerpoints so we can effectively teach visual, verbal, physical, social, and solitary learners.
