Ms. Kimberly Villarreal
I have been teaching at Bradley for sixteen years. I started out teaching math and science for the first few years but moved to art for my third year here. Art is my passion. I enjoy experimenting with different materials and am constantly learning new techniques. I am a member of the Texas Art Educators Association, the Texas Classroom Teachers Association (Coordinating Council representative for Region 20), the National Art Educators Association, San Antonio Leaders and Teachers, and the San Antonio Art Educators Association (Webmaster). I have many hobbies, including fire spinning and photography. I also sponsor the Art Club and the Garden club. I have a little boy who will be seven this Christmas, who is the center of my world. We have lots of pets at our home; 10 ball pythons, a bunch of mice, 3 dogs, and numerous fish. I am currently working on my Masters in Art Education through the Art of Education University online program. I am looking forward to helping students build not only their artistic skills but also their ability to problem-solve and express themselves.
Welcome to Art 1, Art 2, Art 1 for HS credit, and sewing! My classes will continue to utilize Google classroom and Artsonia this year. All art students will maintain a digital portfolio on Artsonia to document their growth in art. All of our class project instructions, materials, and warm-ups will always be posted to Google classroom for students to access. We encourage all families to follow their students on Artsonia to see the amazing work they are doing and give them feedback.
We will have an Art Supply fee of $20 for all art classes. The reason for this is that we can bulk order for a better price on better quality supplies than what is found at retail stores. This also helps with the problem of stores running short on key items such as sketchbooks.
This year we do have a class set of most of the supplies needed for class. If you choose to have your own materials so you do not need to share with others, please purchase the following: 9x12 mixed media sketchbook, pencils, Oil pastels, chalk pastels, charcoal, markers, colored pencils, scissors, a ruler, a glue bottle, paintbrushes, watercolors, handheld sharpener and a container to keep all items except the sketchbook in. Additional materials may be needed for certain projects.
All slideshows, warm-ups, and contests posted in Google classroom for students can also be found at the following link to allow parents more access to materials: Ms.Vs Art class page
