I am the Art Specialist at Roosevelt Elementary School. I teach art to grades 1-5 once a week for 45 minutes. My goal is to create an art studio environment for elementary students where they learn and practice art skills, processes, materials and tools to create original and expressive works of art. With the help of a generous grant from the San Leandro Art Association this fall, I was able to buy watercolors, paper, drawing pencils and other essential art materials that have helped to keep the art class up and running.
