Welcome to Art Class!
Miss Reed is a Teacher and an Artist!
She teaches Kindergarten through 5th grade Art for the Coeur d'Alene School District and loves aiding the creativity of her students. She very much believes in the therapeutic properties of Art and sees that self-confidence can be achieved through the art making process for all of her students. Beyond her love for teaching Art she has always had an eye for detail and she likes to share this with her students! She loves creating anything with her hands and has a lot of experience in a variety of mediums! Miss Reed does a lot of paper crafts and mixed media in the classroom and loves to teach drawing! She especially enjoys teaching her students to draw (which they love) which helps them learn to articulate concepts and ideas in any subject for a lifetime. She works to introduce her students to several artistic processes and cultures, including fiber arts; felting, weaving and ceramic arts!In her class, her students learn a variety of skills and techniques using many forms of media, while they study famous artists, cultures and concepts around the world! She uses the National Core Art Standards adopted by the Coeur d'Alene School District and her projects align with curriculum goals, giving her students another way to understand and display their content learning. Miss Reed looks forward to many more experiences in Art with her students here in Big Beautiful Coeur d'Alene!
