This is the art education blog for artist and teacher, Carrie Hooper.
The 2014-2015 school year was my very first year as an art teacher! I have spent a few years doing various jobs around the school but now I am thrilled to have my dream job where I get to create with my favorite artists every day, kids! How lucky am I?
I went to school at the University of North Carolina at Asheville where I studied the visual arts in both traditional media and new media. My focus for my BA was in 3D computer animation and my plan was to work on video game design but after graduating I fell in love with teaching kids and decided to make them my focus!
I hope you enjoy this blog of super fun projects I do with my amazingly talented students.
