Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Ms. Barrett. This is my second year teaching Fine Arts at King Philip Middle School. I am an avid art lover and I cannot wait to get to work with you! I studied art education at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and I am currently pursuing my Masters degree from Bridgewater State University in education with a focus in ceramics. I have been drawing my entire life (I tend to focus on plants and animals in my artwork). I also am extremely passionate about ceramics! I currently teach an adult wheelworking course after school in the ceramics studio at the Fuller Craft Museum.
I am a firm believer that art is not a talent that people are magically born with! It is a talent that must be practiced in order to grow, just like any other skillset. In our time together in Fine Arts, we will try out many different art-making techniques and styles, as well as go through exercises to help you flex your artistic muscles! All of this will happen through a variety of art tools, with the assistance of viewing some of my favorite artists throughout art history. Through hard work, thoughtful discussions, perseverance, and most importantly, play, we will become stronger artists together! No previous artistic talent or practice required!
For the 2020-2021 school year, we will be using Google Classroom for all of our assignments. You will receive an invitation to this classroom in your KP email sometime near the first week of our trimester starting. If you have ANY questions about the Fine Arts course or myself, please feel free to email me!
