Mrs. Jessica Sides - Art Specialist

Hello Lakeview! My name is Jessica Sides. I am starting my 9th year as an Art Specialist. This school year will be my 13th year teaching in Little Elm ISD. I enjoy teaching all grade levels, especially the elementary students as they have "no fear" when creating. 

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the Texas Woman's University, in 1999. I have also received my Master’s degree in ECE (Early Child Development) from University of North Texas, in 2006. I am certified in EC-4 Generalist and Art Education Kindergarten - 12th Grade.

My philosophy is that ALL children succeed in ART. All children can learn to create art with skill, learn from art of great masters that will enrich their lives, and use art as a form of self-expression. My mission is to ENGAGE, EQUIP and EMPOWER students to do more in Art than they think they could. I strive to create an environment where all students can become independent, self-directed risk-takers.

You Got to Have ART!
"All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ” -Pablo Picasso
