Hello Coyotes! My name is Sarah Richardson. Most of you know me as Mrs. R. I am the visual arts and drama teacher at Crossroads Elementary. What you might not know is that I am a teaching artist! Not only do I teach art, but I have a photography studio as well. While I enjoy exploring and creating art with a variety of media, photography is my favorite.
I grew up creating and loving art so naturally I decided that when I grew up I wanted to share my love and appreciation of art with others. As an arts educator my goal is to get my students thinking like artists. I teach my students how to plan, develop their ideas, collaborate with others, and be creative problem solvers. Early on my students learn about media and tools, art processes, art history, and how to use technology in the artroom through play and exploration. As students progress they learn to develop their own ideas and personal artwork.
