Kati Kameroski enjoys using scientific processes and poetry in the creation of her own clay work. It is Mrs. Kameroski's belief that Art-education is a crucial element to well rounded education for a variety of reasons. Art making allows students to express themselves, take innovative risks, practice and hone observation skills, engage motor skill development and hand-eye coordination. Through viewing art, students may explore culture, diversity, science, history, and a variety of other subjects. In many instances art assists individuals in overcoming challenges unique to that person and discovering ways to value the unique talents specific to each of us.
Mrs. Kameroski has a passion for nurturing all her students, by curating a postive classroom environment, and inspiring a love for learning through the arts. No matter the student's ability level, interests, or backgorund, everyone has a chance to pursue finding their own potential and every student brings value into the classroom. Diversity is celebrated as an asset, and the beauty of diverse culures are explored through art history in her classes as well.
