Ms. Beth Connolly

Welcome to our ART at Carnahan page!  I am Ms.Connolly.  I hold a B.F.A. in painting from Webster University (1997) as well as an M.A.T. in teaching communications (2004).  I have been teaching art around St.Louis for 20 years with a decade spent teaching in the St.Louis Public schools.  I was also a product of SLPS.  I graduated from Metro High School in 1992.  In my spare time, I enjoy painting, reading, taking care of all my pets, and spending time with my husband and nine year old twins.

I teach all the visual art classes at Carnahan High School of the Future.  This year, the classes offered are:

Introduction to Art:  a beginning level class that gives students a broad introduction to the elements and principles of art in the fall and some world art history in the spring.

Drawing and Painting: a second level class that focuses on 2D techniques and media.  Students learn observational drawing techniques to sharpen their skills as well as gain experience working with various materials. 

Sculpture: a third level class that focuses on all things 3D!  Students work with paper, wire, plaster, cloth, and clay to build a variety of sculptures and any non-flat art.

Studio art: a third level course that is meant to offer students an opportunity to delve deeper into artistic styles, materials, and build the art portfolio in preparation for college.
