Mr. Steve Duncan
Hey. My name is Steve Duncan and I am the art teacher here at Corinth-Holders Elementary. This is my sixth year here in Johnston County and CHES. I taught previously in western NY (7 years) and in Greene County in North Carolina (2 years). I have my BS and MS in Art Education (K-12) from SUNY College at Buffalo (which we affectionately refer to as Buff St.). I completed 26 credits in a MS in Administration and Leadership but I am currently 18 credits into a MS in Illustration from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
I love to paint and draw...and sculpt...and use various printmaking methods, i.e. etching, woodblock prints and silk screen. I feel like I give our students the enthusiasm they need to create with various different art mediums and I will provide the environment they need to have fun and feel safe to explore using the visual arts.
The first project for the year is a very easy premise. I want to think and experiment with the concept and philosophy @ CHES and that is a student having a "growth" vs. "fixed" mindset. Basically it boils down to is that someone is not born with gifts or talents, that everyone needs to or better yet has the ability to build off of where they are presently at, ie. "I am not good at math - AND I CAN get better at this if I try".
So, we are doing a school-wide installation (might be referred to as a mural) where each student is asked to make a "mark" using color theory principles.
