  • Ann Campbell

    Art Track for students entering 6th - 8th grade will be instructed by artist, Ann Campbell, from Chattanooga, TN. Ann began her art journey in the Naples, FL area 20 years ago with several teachers and mentors.  She quickly progressed to proficiency and has been teaching art in a retirement community since 2011.  She has entered various art shows & sold paintings as well.  In this track students will learn some basic rules of composition & color mixing, complete 2-3 major projects, including canvas painting and water color, and smaller mixed media projects as time permits. Ann says art is a fun and relaxing hobby and much can be accomplished if you have a desire to learn.  You learn to write by repetition and practice and this same principle applies to painting.
