About Ms. Carpenter

Hi, I'm Ms. Carpenter! Welcome to Art! 
My hometown is Magnolia, Texas, a lovely place right outside of Houston. I didn't live my whole life there however; as a teenager I lived in Melbourne, Australia and even graduated from high school there! Upon returning to the USA, I attended and graduated from Lubbock Christian University in 2016 with a Bachelor's Degree in Art Education. From there, I accepted a job to teach English overseas in Wuhan, China. It was an incredible experience that taught me over the course of three years to appreciate the beauty of change and the value of being flexible with whatever life throws at you.
This is my second year teaching art in Frenship ISD. In my class, we will look at artistic movements spanning generations, art styles according to different cultures, and the elements of art, creating projects that focus on them. Other times, I may ask you to create something silly or personal. As long as you put your heart in it.
I look forward to seeing you in the Art Room!
