• Do whatever projects you would like and I will be posting more.  These projects that I will be posting are all additional, if you have any questions please email me and I will get back to you within the hour.  Remember use whatever art materials you may have around the house.  If you don't have blank white paper, then use the back of copy paper that maybe has already been used.  Magazine, paperbags, cardboard from boxes, shoe boxes anything that is ok with your parents to draw on.  If you just don't want to do the projects that I posted at least try to make a sketch book to have as a journal of your experience of schooling at home.  Draw how you feel, maybe of your siblings or of your parents, maybe an animal that you have at home.  Take a walk outside your house draw a tree, flower, a bug or here is a chanllenge how about drawing your house!  Make whatever you draw interesting and with lots of details.  Be safe!

Dear Students, While we are not in school I have posted some ideas and videos for you to review. The upper grades (3rd-5th) you can do all of them if you so choose. (K-2nd) if you are up for the challenge you may try and work on the (3rd-5th) materials as well. PLEASE make your sketchbook first, which can be found on the General Art Projects page, and then you can start working!

  • ART SHOW CANCELED

Mrs. Durr-Anayiotos

Art Teacher
I have been working at River Dell Elementary since 2013. I taught in Cumberland County, 3 years as an Assistant Teacher and 2 years as an Art Teacher. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art with a major in Painting. Lived in Cyprus for 5 years and taught Art as well as worked with High School students in English Conversation. Before moving to Cyprus I lived in NYC for 7 years learning, teaching and working with many artist in Papermaking. Have had numerous art shows in NYC as well as overseas.

Mission

Is to get every student thinking outside the box in Art.  There are NO mistakes in Art just creative ideas.  If you know how to draw a straight line, a curved line then you are on your way to creating a masterpiece.  Students will learn about art from other countries, understanding the Elements of Art and the Principals of Design vocabulary, all while they are creating and having FUN!  I will be incorporating other subjects while they are working on their projects.  I will have the honor of seeing the students a week at a time.  This will help students to get the full picture and understanding of the how, why, the where and when of ART.  

I am Truly Living the Dream when it comes to teaching your students and look forward to the 2019-2020 school year!
