We welcome parent and community volunteers in our district art studios. Artist, craftspeople, designer, and architect parents, grandparents and guardians:  we need your input and support!  Please don't hesitate to get involved in your child's school art program, at any level.

I invite you to contact me directly with feedback and  ideas on elevating Art Education at Santa Fe Public Schools.
