    Welcome to Art Class!

     

    Hello! I am Mrs. Shrawder and this is my first year teaching art to grades K-3 at Muhlenberg Elementary Center! 

    I am so excited to be teaching foundational conepts and skills in art next to the amazing art teacher Kristy Manwiller.  Before teaching elementary art I taught art, photography, and technology to high school students in the Bethlehem School District and spent the last three years teaching elementary art to grades K-5 at Arts Academy Elementary Charter School in Allentown, Pa. 

    I graduated from Kutztown University with my Bachelor of Fine Art degree with concentrations in painting and photography in 2011.  After graduating I worked in New York City creating visual display designs for a bridal store in the West Villiage.  During that time I worked on my own fine art in watercolor painting, and was a studio assistant for a wedding invitation design company.  I realized my true calling and desire was to use my art background and work with students.  So I attended Kutztown University for graduate school in art education and now I feel as though I have found my home in the Muhlenberg School District. 

     

    Why do I teach art?

     

    I believe every student is a masterpiece and I love helping them to find the beauty within themselves through art!
