Welcome to the Memorial and Wenz Elementary Schools Visual Arts website. Here you can find information about the art programs at both schools and stay up to date on what's going on in the classroom. In the art programs at Memorial and Wenz, students will be able to experiment with different materials and techniques. Young students discover the excitement of color mixing and how to use materials the correct way while older students begin to identify with styles of art and find their strengths and weaknesses. In the art programs I feel it is neccessary for students and parents to know that I do not grade on talent. I grade on the students ability to follow directs, interaction with their peers, proper use of materials, and effort they put into their work. Every artist starts from the beginning and working hard is how they gain talent and confidence. I aim to make the art environment for the students welcoming, interesting, and educational.
