Hello! I am Emily Griest and I teach 2D Design and Drawing at Lake Region High School! The classes I teach help students not only learn how to create art, but how to appreciate and critique artwork. I believe that having a background in art history is essential to any art education, so I not only base my lessons around art historical movements or contemporary artists, but I have Art History Spotlight where kids are encouraged to talk about art and explore possible meanings to paintings and drawings. I graduated from Florida Southern College with degrees in both Art Education and Studio Art. Art has always been my passion and I cannot wait to share my love and appreciation for art with my students!
