I am Mrs. Bryant the art teacher.  I started teaching at John Colemon Elementary in the 2015/2016 school year.  I love art...seeing it, learning about it, teaching it, buying it, and doing it of course!  My favorite type of art is encaustics (painting with wax).  
My goal is to give each student the resources they need to become successful artists if that's what they choose either as a profession or even a hobby.
Resources for Students during the COVID-19 Shutdown: 

Standard: VA.Cr1.A

Now, make your own color wheel! If you have a printer, you can print out this color wheel and complete it with your own crayons or colored pencils.

No printer? No problem! Draw your own circles on a blank piece of paper to create your own!
