Art - Grades K-5
Craftsbury Elementary School Art serves students from grades kindergarten to five. Our mission is to develop our students’ knowledge of our past, ourselves, and our surroundings. Art is a means of self- expression and communication involving our emotions and thinking. Students develop skills in problem solving, manipulating media and processes to create works that communicate personal meaning. Students also work collaboratively with one another. There is a high emphasis placed on the inclusion of our community stakeholders.
About the Art Teacher
My name is Alayne Tetor and I am the new K-12 art teacher at Craftsbury Schools. I recently moved to Vermont after living and teaching high school art in Homer, Alaska for 12 years. This move brought me closer to my family in Pennsylvania, where I was born and raised. I have a bachelor's degree in Art Education from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and a master's in Art and Design Education from Vermont College of Fine Arts. My masters work focused on the intersections of ceramic arts and interconnectedness with the environment. I love all forms of art making, but especially ceramics, sculpture, wearable arts, printmaking, and mixed media. I am also a big art history nerd and love to visit museums and galleries. In addition to art, I enjoy running, biking, nordic and backcountry skiing, hiking, and reading. You'll probably see me out and about running, biking or skijoring with my little Alaska sled dog, Tozi. Teaching art brings me great joy and I feel like I'm the lucky one who gets to learn from these amazingly creative kids!
