About Elementary Art
In Elementary art, students learn about a wide variety of artists, artistic movements and styles, and complete many different projects in various mediums such as watercolor, oil painting, design, and more! By the end of elementary, students will have learned about how the art world functions, its many components, and how to look at an artwork in order to listen to the artist. Our goal is for students to be able to have some context in art history, learn to appreciate art, practice in critical thinking, practice different creative styles, and be able to use their God-given gifts in the artistic realm!
Mrs. Clare Campion is our fabulous art teacher. She hails from England and attended school at Stoke on Trent 6th form College, then to Stoke on Trent college for her BTEC in early childhood education. She is a self-taught artist and has done many murals and commissioned art around San Diego, from schools and restaurants to private homes. She has worked in early childhood education for about 30 years. Mrs. Campion has been an artist for 25 years and I has taught art through private art classes for about 15 years. Her favorite part in teaching is observing students grow and watching them face and overcome challenges. We are so grateful to have Mrs. Campion at CMCS!
