Welcome to my website!Mr. Simpson Art RoomBeginner, Intermediate, Proficient, Advanced and AP: Studio Art 2D Design
This is my tenth year at Western Alamance High School. I have taught Art for 21 years and eagerly await the challenges and changes that come with experience. My approach begins with the definition that Art means "skill" from the Latin and Greek. I want to teach students the skills necessary to create aesthetically pleasing works. I am a member of the North Carolina Art Education Association and was on the Executive Board for 4 years and have presented at State conferences. The NCAEA is a state affiliate of the National Art Education Association with whom I have completed the School for Art Leaders in addition to presenting at 2 national conferences. I am in the process of starting an Atelier Interest Group within the NAEA. I have trained closely with the Da Vinci Initiative and School of Atelier Arts in the past several years.
