About me and my classroom:'
Hello and welcome! My name is Mrs. Page and this is my 9th year with the Greater Latrobe School District as an Art Educator. I am from, and currently live in, the Ligonier area. This year I teach Art Explorations, Ceramics II, 2D&3D Design, Human Figure, Portfolio Prep, Drawing & Painting, along with Art History I & II. I also participate in co-advising for our National Art Honor Society. I am the group leader for Art Tours Abroad. Every two to four years I take a group of interested Art students to an area around the world to explore culture, art, and history.
I model my courses based on the following:
-The study of both art history and contemporay art
-Developing craft through the study and use of various media (studio art)
-Introduction to criticism and aesthetics in art
-Creating personal/cultural/meaningful connections
-21st Century skill practice through art which combines creativity/creative problem-solving with design processes!
-8 Studio Habits of Mind
