Visual Arts

Art Teacher, Luz Hernandez

Welcome to the Visual Arts Program at Shorehaven Elementary School. I am so excited to be exposing the young minds of our students to the incredible world of art! We will be learning about the elements and principles of design as well as taking a closer look at some amazing past and current artists who have shared their vision and message with the universe. I can’t wait to see what our own students have to share! My goal is to help children of all ages see art as a healthy and beautiful form of expression in which EVERYONE can participate.
