Bio

Sue Brunner

 

I have taught for 30+ years.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Art Education K-12 and a Master's Degree in Special Education from Louisiana Tech University.  I am a member of the Texas Art Educators Association and serve as sercretary of the Art Educators of North Central Texas.

I have enjoyed teaching many subject areas at many levels in the realms of Special Education as well as middle school art for 15 years and have taught at the high school level since 2000. 

I illustrated a children's book, Shirley's Story, The Heart Always Remembers, and I am currently illustrating another book at this time.

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, gardening, calligraphy, drawing, photography, painting, and my two grand children!!! 

 

Teaching Philosophy:  I believe that all children can learn and appreciate the visual arts.  Art and education gohand in hand in devoping great minds and citizens.

Art has, is, and always will be. Art is life.  It is the past, the present, and the future.  It encompasses all things natural and manmade.  It is encountered in all subject areas; history, science, language, and mathematics.  It is utilitarian and decorative.  Art entices the senses; it creates emotion.  It is peaceful, disturbing, exciting, intimidating, and captivating.  Art is preservation, conservation, and possession.  Teaching my students to create and appreciate art is a joy and a passion.  My hopes are that my students grow to love, appreciate and embrace art in all facets of their lives.  After all, art is life.
