  • Welcome to Art Class!

    Davenport A+ School is home to a student body of very talented artists! Our students use their creativity and skills to make artwork that is unique, expressive and beautiful.

    Students get to experience lots of different ways of creating artwork. We draw, paint, sculpt, print, and do collage.

    Because Davenport is an A+ School, I create art units based on not only the State Curriculum, but also on what the students are learning about in their other classes. The integrated learning approach helps students to retain knowledge and become more well rounded learners.
