Ms. Galvan

My name is Cristal Galvan and I am one of two art teachers on campus. I teach 7th, & 8th grade Art 1 & Art 2 and this year I will also be teaching Art 1 High School. I'm excited to be here and can't wait for us to create. I have a Bachelor's degee in Art and a minor in Art history from the University of Texas at San Antonio. The goal in my classroom is for the student to understand that art is a universal language. I want them to understand and use the elements, princples, and content of art.

I want to teach my students to use art as a tool to help them express themselves in the same fashion I once did in my own youth. I want to be able to provide the knowledge that’s going to help and guide them to a better future. Additionally, I am a firm believer that art can be an outlet for students to express their inner feelings and emotions.

It is extremely important as an educator to know and understand my students and what their needs are.  I want to make a creative atmosphere that is going to expand my student’s imagination and create an environment where they are going to feel comfortable knowing that their teacher is there for them.


Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
