Middle School Artists

Description

ENROLL FOR FALL-SPRING, 2018-19

Students will receive visual arts instruction in various forms, particularly drawing and painting. In addition to learning professional techniques and experimenting with new media, the class will follow the entire artistic process from initial sketches to final works, from artist statement to public presentation. Selected media may include watercolor, ink, colored pencil, etc.

With an illustrative bend, the course emphasizes visual storytelling. Students will create works that communicate their ideas, experiences, and personal styles within an encouraging, inspiring environment.

Allison Morris Lesch is a visual artist whose practice emphasizes a by-hand, mixed media approach to drawing. Through pencil, ink, and watercolor, she combines natural observation with a love for color, pattern, and design. A firm belief in the arts’ communicative, collaborative nature and their flourishing beyond the individual artist’s studio underlies her work. In turn, Allison views educating others, particularly children and young adults, as a key part of her arts practice. As an educator, she holds a variety of past experiences, including five summers at Laumeier Sculpture Park’s fine arts summer camp and a long-term substitute position at Edgar Road Elementary.

Allison will be receiving her Art Education K-12 teaching certification in May 2018 through UMSL’s accelerated graduate program. She received her Bachelor’s in Art History and Studio Art from SLU in 2015. Notably, Allison remains a grateful alumna of Webster Groves School District for twelve years of foundational education, including one memorable summer as a student of the Gifted Arts program.
