My name is Christina Brady and I am the full-time art specialist at Olympic View Elementary School. My husband, daughter and I love all the outdoor activities, beautiful beaches, and mountain views here.
I grew up in a small town in Kentucky, and got my bachelor's degree in art at Northern Kentucky University. Later I returned to The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington to get a master's degree in teaching. I have taught in Oakland, California and Spokane. When I am not teaching I enjoy making pottery, reading, gardening, and spending time outdoors.
At school, I love teaching art and seeing students' creativity and excitement. I teach all students the elements of art - line, shape and form, texture, value, space, and color. Each grade creates artwork that incorporates one or more of these elements. I base projects on student ability level and student interest. Student artwork is displayed in my classroom, around our school, and in our community. Each year in April as part of Holland Happening, elementary student artwork is displayed in the store windows in downtown Oak Harbor.
