What Students Say

Mrs. Taylor's art class is never boring. We are encouraged to "color outside the lines. She always has exciting and unique projects for us. She has inspired me and my classmates to believe that we are artists. Before I met Mrs. Taylor, I didn't know that I was talented in art. She makes us believe in ourselves. Her enthusiasm for art and constant encouragement is inspiring and brings out the best in her students.
