Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ms. Hackett, and I am very fortunate to teach art classes to the children of our school grades Pre-K through 7th grade. Throughout the year, we learn about different artists, styles, techniques, cultures from around the world, and the elements & principles of art. We explore making art using a variety of media including colored pencils, markers, oil and chalk pastels, watercolor paints, tempera paints, collage, sculpture and printmaking. My curriculum fosters artistic learning and development by adhering to the NYS Art Standards. In art, my students learn to creatively communicate their ideas through imagery, have opportunities to independently problem-solve, and to work together in an art studio environment – all while having fun!
