Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kyra Engelman - Art
Beginning Art for grades 6, 7, and 8
I'm excited to begin a new school year in a still-new school! I am starting my 16th year as a teacher and am looking forward to meeting everyone and doing Beginning Art projects with you! I have a bachelor of fine arts degree in illustration and a master's degree in teaching from Texas Woman's University and am certified in Art, ELAR, ESL, and as a 4-8 Generalist. Although I grew up in Oklahoma, the North Texas area has been home for over thirty years.
In Beginning Art, we'll do some projects to practice the seven elements first, and later we'll focus on design principles along with the elements. I hope you will have a great year and learn about new techniques and materials you may not have used before.
The Canvas Home page for Art class will provide materials and information in case you miss class. Please check it if you are absent.
Grading: Practice assignments, notes, vocabulary, daily work - 60% Projects - 40%
If you get behind or need help completing assignments, please arrange to come to tutoring Monday or Tuesday after school.
