Welcome to my home page! My name is Tressa Green and I graduated from Sam Houston State University. This is my sixth year of teaching art, but I have spent all my life creating! I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and help the world become a greater place for our children. I have two beautiful children and I am constantly on the go with not a minute to spare! My children are 12, and 3 years old....Yes they keep me on my toes! I know that each child can succeed if they put their mind and heart into a project. I am very excited to see what each of my students bring to the table. I want each one of my students to know I will be their biggest fan, and I am here to support them in any way possible!
A few details about my classes that I teach:
Art 7 is seventh graders only and they are basically learning the fundamentals of art. The elements and principles of design are an important key to learning art. If you do not know the vocabulary and how to apply it then you can not truly be the best with your creation! We will work with some clay and paint to give sculpture a try. I hope to have some creative minds and open to try new art!
Art 8 is my eighth graders only and this is a high school credit class. You have to have a prerequisite to get into this class. Art eight touches on the elements and principles lightly, but the students should know the vocabulary already. Students will learn the art history through making their own book and projects through out. This class has more privileges and I expect the up-most out of these students. Two field trips will be announced and posted.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns! Thank you so much and I hope to inspire your child to become an independent, intelligent, and creative person!
