Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kristen Richardson - Art
I teach art at Ware Elementary, Bessie Weller Elementary, and Dixon Preschool! I am a graduate of James Madison University (GO, DUKES)! I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) with my concentration being in Painting and Drawing and completed the JMU art education program. I am a member of the NAEA and VAEA, so I'm always going to conferences and staying on top of the lastest news in art education! I have a best friend named Cooper who loves seeing our musicals and art shows! My favorite things to do include: watching Cartoon Network (you're never too old), and listening to records (mostly stuff from the 50s, 60s, 70s, & 80s).
I am extremely passionate about art education but, more importantly, passionate about working with students! They are the reason I chose to become a teacher. I consider every day that I get to work with your student a gift! I look forward to helping your child achieve and succeed as artists and imaginative thinkers! Art helps our students develop their creativity and problem solving skills (valuable skills to have). I encourage communication with parents/guardians!

I am excited to have your student in my art room!
