In art class, using Gilbert Public School's approved scope and sequence, the students are taught about the elements and principles of art. Each quarter we practice using different mediums using the same approved scope and sequence. The mediums we practice with for example are:
First quarter: Drawing
Second quarter: Painting
Third quarter: 3D forms
Fourth quarter: Mixed mediums ie collage
Hello. My name is Roxanne Gillespie. I am so excited to be working with your little artists this year! This is my 20th year working for Gilbert Public Schools and my 2nd year at Canyon Rim. I am a proud native of this great state of Arizona. I have lived here all my life. I attended ASU and received my bachelors in Art Education there.
I have always loved art. It has been a big part of my life. I believe art can teach us so much about ourselves and the beautiful world we live in. I have been married for 20 years and my husband is an artist as well. We have 3 beautiful children that are growing up too fast. I love teaching art! Your children remind me every day why teaching is so worth it!
