Hello, my Most AMAZING Artists!
How are YOU today?
I so miss your beautiful faces and your wonderful creativity and am looking forward to our new Adventures in Art: Creating from a Distance!
The first thing I need you to do is to figure out what kind of supplies you have around your house that you can create with.
I encourage you to think outside the box: yes, regular art supplies are great, but what other things around the house can you use?
Go on a hunt, and, with parent permission, start gathering materials that you could create art with. I will be sharing some ideas I have for materials you can use, but I want to see what you come up with first!
Now is also a perfect time to get familiar with our Artsonia online art gallery, if you haven't already. Look for the link on this page and check it out.
Many of your parents have already given permission for you to use this free and completely safe site, but if yours have not yet, I encourage them to do so, as this is where we will be sharing your completed activities. Have your parents email me for more information on how to give permission for Artsonia use.
Our First Lesson
Our Week One Lesson can be found in the BPS Visual Arts Distance Learning Lesson link below. In addition, feel free to select an activity from the Art Challenge Treasure Map found in the Files below.
I can't wait to see what you have created!
Take a photo and upload it to Artsonia or email it to me so I can see.
I miss being surrounded by your talent!
In the meantime, remember:
I make messes!
I make mistakes!
But deep inside, I've got what it takes!
I AM an ARTIST!

Art is my passion, so I am thrilled to be the Art Teacher at WMSS! I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art and a Master of Arts in Teaching, both from Colorado College. My specialties in college were in printmaking and sculpture. My Master's research project involved integrating science and art. Therefore, I feel very much at home at our School for Science.
Having worked in Brevard Public Schools for over 25 years, I began teaching in a regular classroom in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. I have been teaching Art since 2000, and I think that my regular classroom experience has made me an even better Art Teacher. In addition, I co-chair the Brevard County Southern Division Art Fair Committee. I truly believe that I have the best job in the school! Creating art with children--what could be better?
I am married to my friend Pieter Cronje, who, originally from South Africa, recently obtained his American citizenship. We have a delightful daughter and a rascally dog, Archibald, a Cairn terrier mix. As a family, we enjoy outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, and boating. In my spare time, I am actively involved with Surfers for Autism, a nonprofit organization dedicated to Autism Awareness and Acceptance, and am on the Board of Directors for SOAK (Supporting Our ASD Kids), a local group that offers support and resources for families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder. Artistically, I love to draw and paint, but am most fond of printmaking and working with clay.
I look forward every year to working with your children as they experiment with a variety of media, discover favorite artists and art forms, and explore new ways to creatively express themselves in the WMSS Art Lab!
