I'm Mrs. White! I started teaching at Vista High School in 2017 after moving down to the San Diego area from Los Angeles. I taught AP Art History and art at Mira Costa High School for six years. This will be my ninth year overall.
I have a BA from Cal State Long Beach in Art Education and I just started working on my masters in Educational Administration from Cal State San Marcos! Graduation in 2020! WOOT!
I travel as much as I can. I love a good adventure and try to travel to a new place every year. I have taught art classes in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and English Language classes in Hangzhou, Zeijiang, China. I've been lucky enough to travel with students to Greece, Spain, France, England, and Costa Rica. I've also traveled to journalism conferences with students to Boston, Washington DC, Orlando, and Indianapolis. I've also attended art conferences in New York City, Memphis, and Seattle.
My two favorite artists of all time is Wassily Kandinsky- a Russian artist credited to creating the first fully abstract watercolor artwork and Vincent van Gogh with his emotionally beautiful swirly colors.
Kandindky said this about circles: "It is a link with the cosmic. But I use it, above all, formally. Why does the circle fascinate me? It is: 1. the most modest form, but asserts itself unconditionally, 2. a precise, but inexhaustible variable, 3. simultaneously stable and unstable, 4. simultaneously loud and soft, 5. a single tension that carries countless tensions within it. The circle is the synthesis of the greatest oppositions. It combines the concentric and the eccentric in a single form, and in equilibrium. Of the three primary forms [triangle, circle, square], it points most clearly to the fourth dimension." http://www.nortonsimon.org/collections/browse_artist.phpname=Kandinsky%2C+Vasily&resultnum=3
