Atkins, Jolie - Art

Welcome to
The Art Room!!

Meet the Teacher:
Jolie Atkins

Hi, I am Jolie Atkins, the Art Teacher at Black Mountain Schools.  My goal here is to provide each student with a well-rounded arts education.  It is important to channel learning and interests about themselves and the world into a creative and interactive medium.  Art helps students to grow and develop concepts.  It adds to their academic experience at school by integrating their other subjects for full circle learning.  We are focused on global learning by incorporating art influences from many cultures in the world.  Technology in the Art Room enhances students' learning in the 21st century.

Let the beauty of the community around us be your inspiration!!  In our Art Room, we are inspired by nature and we try to be good environmental stewards by lightening our carbon footprint.  We practice the 3 R's:  Reducing our waste, Reusing old/found materials to make art, and Recycling only if we can't salvage what we are working on.  The Art Department is a major contributor to our NC Green Schools program by meeting many of its standards!
