Welcome to Art ! My name is Ms. Nambo and I am the art teacher here at Beaver Technology Center. I am thrilled to be a part of this great school with such awesome students and staff.
The Art Room is a place of excitement and energy as students learn about artists, art styles and the role of art throughout history. It is also a place to get quiet, to focus and to reflect as students create their own masterpieces. Students will experience working with a variety of materials and also learn specific techniques which will enhance their artistic skills. All grade levels will learn about the elements of art and principles of design and follow the GISD comprehensive curriculum which is aligned with the Fine Arts Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.
Student work will be displayed in the hallways throughout the school year and selected artworks will be on display at the Beaver Arts Showcase in March. Student work will also be exhibited at the annual GISD Elementary Art Show at the South Garland Branch Library and all students will have the opportunity to participate in art contests and exhibits that showcase student work in the community and surrounding areas of Dallas -Ft. Worth such as the Cotton Bowl Classic and the Dallas Cup Art Contests.
I look forward every day to sharing my knowledge and love of art with my students.

Art tips for parents
Allow your child to discover their own unique ways of expression by having access to crayons, markers, colored pencils, paint and chalk. Better yet, sit and create some art together with your child.
Ask your children to share with you what they have learned in art class and proudly display their work in your home/office!
