I am an art teacher with the Fairfield Community Schools teaching grades K through 5. I enjoy working with the children and helping them learn to use the creative side of their brain. I hope you enjoy my blog and seeing a bit of what we work on in the art classes.

January Art Walk Promises Youth Art

The January Art Walk on Fri., Jan. 6, will feature a display of youth art work from various schools. The work above by Jacy, a first grader at Libertyville Elementary, is one example of a piece of artwork that will be on display. There will be a reception with refreshments from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Fairfield Public Library. Everyone is welcome to attend and enjoy seeing examples of what fine art is produced by students from kindergarten through 12th grade. This is a great time to come and enjoy seeing the wonderful creations by some of our students. This January show is a sampling of some of the fine art already produced this fall by some of our students.Of course we could not include every single student in this sampling. That will be accomplished in the spring with the Elementary Art Show in May. Every student K-4 will have work on display for the May event.
