My name is Margie Huckabay. I have been teaching for 18 years. I love my job teaching art to K-4 students at London and Dwight Elementary. Art is a big part of my life and both of my daughters are creatives and enjoy making things. My granddaughter, Blakely loves to paint at my house. I have been married to the love of my life for 32 years. We enjoy traveling and seeing new things, the outdoors, and playing with Blakely.
Art class is based on the elements and principles of art. Students learn about different artists and how their lives impacted the art world. That is a good way for students to see different art and to learn how these artists impacted our world and how the world affected the artist. Skills are taught throughout the year, as well as art behavior. Each grade level does something special such as field trips, projects like sewing, weaving or drawing on a higher level. Students are all taught the same skills during the year—just on different levels. Students are shown art they can do at home, similar to what was done at school. By using recycled items, my students can use anything to make art!
