• Hello! Welcome to 7th Grade ART!
    I have been teaching art in the State College School District for 23 Years and feel very fortunate to be in a school district that supports the Arts. My goal as an Art teacher is to give my students the opportunity to gain a better understanding and appreciation of Art. It is important to me that students will look back on their 7th grade Art experience and realize that when given the proper skills and with hard work and perseverance, they can create ART that is better than they ever imagined possible.
    I graduated from IUP in Art Education and recently received my Master Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to study Art and Art History in Italy. That time in my life offered me an opportunity to understand how important Art is in our lives in a way I will always cherish and try to pass on.  In my free time I love to create Art of all kinds, ride bike, walk in the woods, garden, ski and travel.
    I would like to offer the opportunity for parents and community members to come and visit the art room and help out or share their skills and knowledge.
    Thank you for your support. Hopefully together we can open student's young eyes and help them to see the power and wonder of creativity and how ART enriches our lives. Mrs. Amy Barnhart
