Meet Ms. Knudsen
Hans Christian Anderson said it well: “Where words fail, music speaks.” My name is Jenny Knudsen and I love teaching music! I believe every student can become a better musician. I don’t think every student will become the next America’s Got Talent winner or star soprano of the Dallas Opera. That's not how I define success in music. I do believe that every child has potential to grow as a musician and it will benefit them in more ways than just learning how to sing or play an instrument. Music teaches teamwork, coordination, cultures other than their own, and challenges your brain like nothing else! I'm passionate about teaching your child all this and more! Welcome to Watson! I'm so glad you are here.
Our Watson Third Graders recently presented their production of "Commotion in the Ocean" at their PTA program. They did an amazing job of bringing this story to life, while playing instruments and singing. We look forward to their next show!
Meet Mr. Balloon
Leonardo da Vinci once said,
“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return”.
This is also my philosophy! At Watson MST Art your child will taste the possibilities of their potential by continually striving for the best and not settling for less while discovering the unique artist inside them. In Art they will learn what is used to create visual art which is called the elements and principles of art such as: line, shape, color, value, form, texture, repetition, pattern and much more. Students will also learn ultimately to utilize problem solving skills as well as expressing themselves using a higher order of thinking to tell stories and share experiences through pictures. Art is not limited to traditional creation of art such as painting, drawing, sculpting, and coloring, but also integrated throughout technology today. Therefore, students will learn traditional as well as digital art such as; Graphic Design, Animation, Motion Graphics, and Concept Art.
Every day in art class will be an adventure as we go on missions to solve project problems and travel back in time exploring artist throughout history and now. So let’s go Wildcat Jr. Artists!!!
