Welcome to Art with Mrs. G!
I'm glad you have found me here! This website will be a place to see all the creative things going on in my Art rooms. I'm pleased to be teaching Art in 3 wonderful elementary schools this year! That means I have more young artists that are full of creative energy. This will be a place to share that creativity with students, parents, and community members.

Under MORE you will find many other pages of information - like Interactive Art Fun, ArtSmart Vocabulary the students are learning, Videos that I have created or compiled from other talented sources, Presentations that I use in my teaching with students, a page that contains Mrs. G's personal artwork along with project examples, and a link to my Art Ed blog where I gather and share ideas with other Art Educators from around the world.

About Mrs. Gillespie
I have been teaching Art for over 19 years in the Moline School District in Illinois. I have a BA degree in Art Education and a MEd degree in Education & Technology. I love Art and Technology - it's a great combination! I enjoy coming up with new projects and ideas for the students and I to get creative with. Personally, I enjoy many different art mediums. Acrylic painting is perhaps my favorite, but I’ve never met a visual art form I didn’t enjoy.
Take a look at Mrs. & Mr. G's ArtsyBug Studio. A great place for all ages to be creative!

Disclaimer: Things are very fluid and flexible in the world of Art Ed! Plans change often due to classes needing a little extra time or finishing early or an assembly pops up or I find something's just not working....So check back often to get up-to date plans.
