•      Eric Carle welcome

    I will be out for maternity leave, probably starting in March. Our substitute teacher will be Mrs. Bishop. If you have any questions during that time, you can email her at abishop@gsiccharter.education.   

       My name is Ms. Sommer and I will be teaching 6th and 7th grade as well as High School Visual Arts class this year. This is my sixth year teaching at GSIC. I am so very excited to see the new, wonderful creations that the students will make this year. I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Studio Art from Augusta University. I believe that first-hand art experience is essential so, while in college, I participated in as many study abroad trips as I could. I attended and helped lead trips to the Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, and Italy. My art has been exhibited across the U.S.. My primary media are ceramics, drawing, and photography.

          I am very passionate about art. My primary goal is to help students find their appreciation for art and self expression. Through the study and creation of art, students will naturally develop the four classical virtues our school strives to achieve. Furthermore, the study of art helps students to lead more enriched lives, and instill in them an appreciation for, and fascination of, the world around them. The visual arts curriculum integrates topics from other disciplines in order to help deepen students’ understanding and appreciation of these diverse subjects.

        Please, feel free to contact me if you have any questions by email at msommer@gsiccharter.education and on class Dojo. (I use class Dojo as my primary source of communication.)

        I will also use Google Classroom to post assignments some of the assignments. See below for google classroom access codes.

        Thank you for all of your support. I am looking forward to a great new year!
