Ms. Sara Wilson
Welcome to the Painted Sky Art Room! I love teaching art! In my art room, all students are artists.
Core Educational Belief
I believe the arts are an important part of who we are. The arts are an avenue for people of all walks of life to communicate and express themselves on a deeper level. Through art we are able to learn more about ourselves and others. We learn how to build understanding through inquiry and problem solving. We learn how to be innovative, observant, and collaborative. We learn skills that will benefit us throughout our adolescent and adult lives.
This is my sixth year as the Visual Arts Teacher for the Amphitheater School District.
I have been a part of education outside the classroom by leading several enrichment programs:
Odyssey of the Mind
Math in Art Club
I enjoy working in 3-D art: wood sculpture/building, eco art, and ceramics. I also enjoy painting with oil, acrylic, and watercolor.
I have two beautiful daughters that are also students in the Amphi School District! I love walking with my dog, hiking, mountain biking, going to the beach, watching the sunset, traveling to other countries, and socialzing with neighbors & friends! I have an interest in Teaching Artistic Behaviors and Art Therapy. I aspire to have my own small art studio where I can continue to share my passion for art with others.
