Vinal School Art Teacher

Hello, Friends! Welcome to the Vinal Elementary Art Page. I am the art teacher, Mrs. Holmes. Through art, our students have the opportunity for self-expression and the ability to showcase their personal strengths in a meaningful way. This not only helps them to become more perceptive in art, but also in life. From creative problem solving, to discovery, to investigating, dreaming and inventing, creating art is a great way to improve concentration and express individuality. I always tell my students, "Everyone can draw, but no one can draw just like you," and "You can't do it if you don't imagine it first." My hope is to bring new skills to each student that will inspire them to create in ways they may not have explored before. I believe the process of creating is just as important (if not more important) than the outcome of the art itself. The creating processes we will explore are wonderful for supporting the development of students as they focus, make choices, take risks and feel successful.
