This is Ms. Maneval. I am Vida Charter Schools, Visual Arts Teacher. Thank you for taking the time to explore our class website. This site is designed to help students, parents, and the community stay up to date with what's happening in our art class. I'm looking forward to showing you how to enjoy, appreciate, and create meaningful art experiences.
This year, we will have an actual Art Room. Hooray! Instruction occurs once a week for 45 minutes. I am part-time and scheduled to be at school four days a week. My teaching methods emphasize that all students of different abilities and skills will succeed no matter what career paths they choose in life. Art is not just for artists or "the artistic ones". As you will see, the more you know about art, the more you can understand how it impacts our lives. For everyday, we encounter the arts, but don't even realize it - public parks, our homes, TV, movies, clothing, sports, etc.... All of these involve an artistic process and everyday life wouldn't be possible without some kind of art experience.
