Hello Parents and Students,
I am one of three Art Teachers that proudly represent Edward Manzano Middle School. I received a bachelor’s in Fine Arts Education from The University of Texas at Brownsville and am currently teaching Art 1 and Art 2. This is my 8th year in education, with 2 in substituting and my 6th year teaching here at Manzano. The objective of the course is that students will rely on their perceptions of the environment, developed by their visual knowledge of their surroundings, memory, imagination, and life experiences. Students will be expected to express their thoughts and ideas creatively. The study of many artists and historical periods will help students develop respect for the traditions and contributions of diverse cultures. Students will also be able to use many art media and apply different techniques by creating their own artworks.
