Welcome to the Broad Rock Middle School Art Website!

BRMS Art Teacher


The Visual Art and Design program at Broad Rock Middle School is designed to foster creativity and build on every students unique artistic ability.  I believe that talent in art is not something given to a child but rather developed with hard work and dedication.  Skills in art build on math concepts and reading skills in many ways.  See the curriculum below for more information.

We will also be using a sketchbook throughout the school year.  We will be making these books in class.  When students arrive to art class, they will begin by drawing the prompt on the board in their sketchbook.  This idea is very open-ended making any response the correct response!
