Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Laura Powell
Welcome to my page! My name is Laura Powell, and I am one of the three art teachers at Crockett Middle School. I have been a full time art teacher at Crockett since September of 2016. Prior to teaching, I attended Long Island University to earn my BFA in Art Education. I am currently attending Azusa Pacific University to receive an MA in Modern Art History.
In addition to teaching at Crockett I am also a member of AENJ and NAEA. These two associations aid in the advancment of visual arts education. The power of the visual arts to enrich human experience and society is recognized and celebrated throughout the world.
I am also an avid artist in my personal life, and I hope to encourage all of my students to have a passion for art and creativity. I believe it is important for students to see a contemporary working artist, and discuss the impact all artists have on our culture and creativity. If you would like to see some of my personal work please feel free to visit my website.
