Spring Branch ISD

Loren H Gardner


My name is Loren Gardner.  This is my 25th year teaching.  I started teaching high school but have been teaching and coaching at the middle school level for the past 21 years.  I graduated from Stephen F. Austin with a BA in Art Education.  I believe that creativity and problem solving is one of the most valuable attributes in today's society.  The arts provide countless opportunities for individuals to develop those skills as they work through different processes.  

  “Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status.” 
― Ken Robinson


Art 1

What to expect: Students will learn about a wide variety of art techniques, materials, and historic artists and movements. Students will learn to use many materials and create finished works of art, as well as participate in extracurricular contests and events.

Things to know: Due to the breadth of materials used in this class, students are expected to pay an Art Fee of $10 to cover costs and replenish individual and class supplies. Students are also expected to behave in a respectful and considerate manner to foster a creative and safe environment for everyone.

Important note: Please be aware that this class will require a substantial time commitment to be successful. Students MUST use ALL the class time available to them and occasionally will need to attend tutorials in order to finish projects/assignments.
