Garwood, Whitney (Fine Arts: AP Art & Design, Portfolio Development, Sculpture I-IV, Ceramics I, Art III/IV, 6th Grade Art)

Welcome to Art!

I am looking forward to teaching students enrolled in AP Art & Design, Portfolio Development, Art III/IV, Sculpture I-IV, Ceramics I and Sixth Grade Art. This is my fourth year teaching at Northland Prep and my twelfth year teaching art. Prior to moving to Flagstaff, I received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Graceland University and taught middle and high school art courses in Lee’s Summit, MO.  I feel fortunate that I have the opportunity to work with NPA students and share my passion for the visual arts! I love to travel, visit art galleries and museums, eat sushi, spend time with family and friends, and explore with my labrador, Belle.

I am looking forward to creating a great year with you!
