  • SHMSWebAnnouncement


    I am Ms. Gartrell, Visual artist and Teacher, Atlanta native, and alumni of Los Angeles City College, and New York University.

    My goal as your art teacher is to create a learning environment where art scholars are encouraged to explore a wide variety of art mediums and processes,

    to educate students on the important role that the arts play in our society and help students make connections on how art impacts our daily lives.

    I look forward to teaching you!!
