Degrees and Certifications:
Hi everyone! I am Ms. Francona, Hamilton's Art Teacher!
Here is a little bit about myself.
I am a 2021 graduate of the Rowan University Art Education Program where I earned a Bachelor's of Art in both Education and Art Education. In March of 2021, I was hired as a part-time Art Teacher at Osage to start in the upcoming fall. There I taught all of 4th grade art and was able to see how much I truly love this district and love teaching! I started working at Hamilton in April of 2022 and this will now be my 2.5 years at Hamilton and third year in our district!
Though I concentrated on photography as an art form in school, my favorite ways to be creative are either painting or pen and ink. I also have experience using many other types of media, including clay, jewelry making, printmaking, and digital artwork.
In my free time, I like to hike with my two dogs who I love very much. I also love to drink boba tea and listen to music!
In my art studio, we will explore art history, art of different cultures, new art techniques, and a variety of media including sculpting, painting, collage, drawing, and printmaking. Overall, I want artists to be happy, safe, and confident as they create. As long as they are trying their best and staying positive, then that is what matters!
Have a healthy Happy Hamilton Day!!
