Welcome to the Art Room!Mrs. Dufort
Pre-K through 5th Grade Art
Welcome! I have been teaching elementary art since 2007 and am excited to be a part of the Garrett Gators. I look forward to getting to know the students and teaching them about visual arts. Throughout the year, your child will draw, paint, collage, sculpt, and more! Together we will work to develop observation and creative thinking skills in addition to learning about various art techniques and media. We will look at art from different cultures and periods of time and discuss how artists communicate visually through art. Most of the student work produced this year will be saved at school for various displays and art shows throughout the year. At the end of the year, your child will get to take everything home to enjoy! Please call or email me with any questions and/or concerns.
