Welcome to Ms Hughes Art Room!
This is my fifth year teaching Art at Coon Rapids High School and I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year in the art room!
I have been involved in education for the last 19 years working across a variety of settings in three different school districts. In the Anoka-Hennepin district, prior to coming to Coon Rapids, I taught Art at Jackson Middle School, Blaine High School, Andover High School, and Coon Rapids High School. Over the course of my career I have taught at every age level, and every course the art department offers - ceramics, painting, drawing, computer art & digital film, sculpture, and mixed media/crafts. This wide variety of art studio course offerings has prepared me well to teach the wide variety of projects and art topics we cover in any art room.
I enjoy spending my day with teenagers and it is my life philosophy that every human is an artist.
I live with my family in Minneapolis. I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and cooking often viewing my creations as interactive edible art work. I also teach a variety of courses at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts in Minneapolis and am an active member in several art groups here in the Twin Cities area, as well as being an active artist in my own studio.
