     Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. -Pablo Picasso
     
     
    I'm Mrs. Britt, the Petal Middle School's Art teacher. I have hopes to teach our students how to capture their creativity in a way that holds on to their childhood and enlightens the possibilities of their future.  In a way, I am still a child; I see the world as having seven million wonders, not just seven. So in my unique classroom, my students will be challenged to think and wonder. We will strive to practice various techniques, read on art careers and current artists; we will compose our thoughts through writing in many critiques to help us grow more empathetic to one another. They will be given a tour of the world through cultures and traditions in history, a view from current artists, and be given the key opportunity of sheer inspiration in all things wonder-full on this earth. I teach design, drawing, painting, sculpting, printmaking, ceramics, photography, installation, but of all these things, I teach beauty. Let's face it, the EARTH without ART is just "EH."
