WELCOME TO THE BRIGHTEN ACADEMY VISUAL ARTS CLASSROOM
My name is Jessica Harms (Ms. Harms) I am very excited to be teaching your students this year! I have experience teaching visual art for the past 10 years in the metro Atlanta area, and I recently graduated with my masters in Art Education from the University of Georgia. I cannot wait to share my unique knowledge, skills, and creativity with your students. If you have any questions, please send an email to
What are we learning about?!
Kindergarten - 5th Grade:
Our students are creating a collaborative art installation for the BACS campus. Each student is painting a river rock as an artifact to leave behind for others. The goal is to make a beautiful outdoor sculpture representing the uniqueness of each child.
Spring semester will begin after the holiday break with two new groups of students! Check back to see what we're up to!
Each student in visual art will create a portfolio where they will organize their artwork throughout the class. Each portfolio will reflect their progress, creativity, craftsmanship, and effort and will be taken home at the end of the semester.
Our fine arts haunted house in October was a great success! And even with the snow storm, Weekend of the Arts was an amazing showing of our students' talents and community support! Thank you to everyone who helped out and attended!
