A little about Mrs. Griffin...

I received my BFA in Communication Arts (Illustration) and my Art K-12 Certification through East Carolina University.  Beginning in 2001, I have taught Visual Art in North Carolina to grades K-8.  I enjoy exploring new places and love the outdoors.  To me, students should have fun creating art, while at the same time learning skills that will help them be successful throughout their lives.

A little about Art... 

Visual arts are tangible creations that can be seen with our eyes. The visual arts include, but are not limited to, drawing, painting, weaving, printing, collage, mixed media, sculpture, and ceramics.

The goal of our Visual Arts Education Program is to help students achieve the following:

*Self-expression through art

*Recognition and appreciation of visual arts in the world around them

*Development of fine motor skills, critical thinking skills, problem solving skills, and spatial reasoning

*Improved academic performance

*Enhanced communication and social skills
