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 from there as well (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 second 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.
