A little about myself:

I am Ms. Cochran but most of my students know me as Ms.C
I graduated from the University of the Art with a Bachelors Degree in Photography and a Masters in Visual Arts Education K-12

What to expect in my classroom:

In my classroom students will not only be introduced to new art mediums (paint, illustration, pastels, clay etc..) but will also be learning about art from around the world. It is my hope that not only will students be allowed to explore their creativity but also become a more globally aware student! Your Student will listen to music, explore their own creativity levels, succeed where they never thought they would, challenge their own creativity, and work as teams to create beautiful masterpieces.
