BFA of Visual Art Studies
Hello! My name is Ciara Rimko.
I am the Art Special's teacher at Parkway Elementary as well as the Yearbook Editor. This is my 4th year at Parkway and I have greatly enjoyed watching the students grow from year to year! I am an alumnus of Lewisville ISD and graduated from Lewisville HS in 2007. I went to UNT graduating in 2013 with a BFA in Visual Art Studies. While I love all art forms, I'd have to say my favorites are ceramics and watercolor. I minored in Japanese and love different aspects of the culture.
I not only teach art but I am also in charge of the school's Yearbook. I work with our great PTA to get pictures for our lovely annuals and hold an annual contest to have students decorate the cover with their original art.
I like to provide students with opportunities to explore different methods of producing artwork such as choice-based art with stations as well as assignments inspired by or exploring classical, multicultural, contemporary, or artistic careers.
My classroom is a POSITIVE VIBES only :D
