Welcome to Dr. Perry's Awesome Art Class
It is with great pleasure to serve as the Visual Arts Teacher for Pleasant Grove Elementary. I have a passion for arts in education and how it motivates and enhances student learning. My goal is to provide an engaging learning experience for all students as it relates to the visual arts curriculum and integrating visual arts with core subject matter. It is my belief that all students have an artistic gift and/or talents. During the school year students will learn about the historical figures in art, art history, the elements of art, and the principles of art design. This information will provide the background knowledge necessary for students to be successful in mastering skills in art. Students will also be able to make connections with real world phenomenon and how art has evolved over the years. I look forward to collaborating with teachers to implement the ART component for the STEM/STEAM school-wide initiative!
