Art With Mrs. Castrigano *** Southeast Middle School
Wednesday, September 26, 2012
Southeast 7th graders studied Pablo Picasso's artwork, specifically his portraits. We discussed how he painted faces and objects from different angles, or CUBISM!! Next, we created colorful portraits in a cubist style. First, we drew the face shape and drew lines to divide the page. Next we drew our facial features (cubist style). In each section students were asked to create a different pattern with marker and color it in with colored pencil.
I am currently in my 7th year of teaching!! I teach art to 6th, 7th and 8th graders at Southeast Middle School. I have taught for 5 years in the Phoenix Elementary School District. I absolutely love teaching art and cannot imagine doing anything else! I enjoy painting in my free time and my artwork has been on display in restaurants and galleries in the Phoenix and Cleveland areas.
I attended Kent State University in Ohio. I majored in Art Education and received two minors in fine art and education. I graduated from High School in Ohio also, and was selected to participate in a professionally oriented Art Program. It was this program and the wonderful teachers that taught it that inspired me to become an Art Teacher.
