Mrs. Karin Hamilton
Hello! My name is Karin Hamilton and I am thrilled to be teaching art at Stetson Elementary School!
A few things about me: I received my B.A. in Elementary Education at California State University, Fresno. I have been an elementary school teacher at Stetson Elementary for 21 years. During my time here I have taught, kindergarten, second grade, third grade, and currently, art. This past year, as I introduced aspects of art to students, I was excited to see amazing art projects coming from our young, creative students!
My family moved to Colorado in 1995. I have been married for 30 years, and my husband and I have one daughter. My favorite hobbies are - drawing, painting, scrapbooking, crafting, playing golf, and bike riding.
This year will be learning the Elements of Art: line, color, shape, form, value, texture, space. The Visual Arts Standards outlined in the Colorado State Standards will be incorporated in our lessons. Students will learn a variety of famous artists and historical Artistic movements. Your child will work with several mediums such as markers, tempera and watercolor paints, clay, collage, and oil pastels.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to teach your child/children this year!
