My name is Cathy Crafts-Allen and I teach art to Oak Grove students two days a week, Thursday and Friday.
I was born and raised in Scituate, Massachusetts, and moved to Brattleboro after I graduated from Plymouth State University. I see each student once a week. The curriculum focuses on a concept-based approach which enables students to become visually literate. Using a wide variety of media (drawing, paninting, collage, textiles, clay, etc.) I like to try to "weave" or integrate the art projects into the various core classroom subject arasof literacy, math, science, and social studies. I also make sure that each skill being presented is appropriate with their developmental age.
I live in town with my husband and we have two grown sons. When I am not at work, I enjoy being outside and taking long walks, flower arranging, travelling (especially to the caribbean!) and going to the beach.
Please feel free to stop in anytime!
