About Me

Welcome to art!  I am Mrs. Southwick.  I am a graduate from Weber State University with a degree in Art and English.  I also have a Master’s Degree in Education: Curriculum and Instructional Technology.  Additionally, I have completed an endorsement in ESL.

I have been teaching art for 20+ years now and I LOVE it!  I am married and have three adorable kids.  I love to read, do art, scrapbook, watch  movies and play with my kids.  I am also a huge Elvis nut!

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES:

Joyous as it may be, the act of creating art demands enormous self-discipline that teaches students to learn how to handle frustration and failure in pursuit of their idea.  It requires setting goals, selecting a strategy, determining how to apply it and continually making assessments and revisions–in other words, thinking and solving problemsIt is the human mind operating at its very best.

“Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist after he grows up.”
