Mrs. Smith - Art Explorations & Art Foundations


Katie Smith 



I'm so excited to start my 9th year teaching art and my third year teaching at Mentor High School.  I will also be teaching 6th grade at Memorial this year.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Kent State University, where I majored in Art Education with a minor in Studio Arts.  I continued my studies at Kent State to earn a Master’s of Education.

Art Explorations

This course is open to students who are interested in a year-long “product based” art class. This course explores a variety of media and techniques. It also prepares the student for any semester art courses. Creative problem solving, craftsmanship, and care of materials will be stressed

Art Foundations

This semester course is designed to teach about visual literacy and the “language of visual art.”  It also prepares the student for any other semester art courses. Emphasis will be on the observation of art, the design of art, and the analysis of art through the elements and principles of design.
