A word with Lauren Birkhahn,
Art Docent at VES
Lauren has kept a dizzying pace, spinning California State Visual Arts Content Standards into fun and engaging lessons for our students. These lessons introduce concepts of color theory, development of visual rhythm, understanding human propor-tion, and creating emphasis with color and composition—just for starters!
Ms. Birkhahn earned a BFA in Art and Design from Cal Poly and has five years experience teaching art. You might be familiar with her public art piece, The Radiant Reading Oak, a collaborative fiber art sculpture she designed for the Atascadero Children’s Library.
Lauren says she enjoys teaching art because she loves “seeing all students reap the benefits that art education offers, opening up worlds of understanding and opportunity for life long learning.” She enjoys “preparing hands-on lessons that offer a learning experience, process, and the potential for a great result.” She finds it rewarding that the students at VES are eager, enthusiastic and appreciative of their time in the art studio!
Artwork is always changing! if you are on campus, be sure to stop in to view the artwork decorating the walls in room C1.
