    Hello, I am Cianne Conklin and I teach Art 1-2, Art 3-4, Art 5-6, and AP Art.  I graduated from Central High School in 2001 and love every minute teaching here. 

    A little bit about the programs I teach are below. 

    Art 1-2 is an exploratory course covering most art mediums, which include: drawing, painting, graphic arts and three- dimensional work.  A major emphasiswill be on the use of the elements and principles of design as they relate to various problems.  This is the first art course in which a student usually enrolls.

    Art 3-4 is a second year art course where one develops and produces a range of artworks which show visual knowledge and understanding along with critical and cultural awareness.

    Art 5-6 is a third year course that focuses on the development of the AP portfolio and one’s self.


    AP (Advanced Placement) students will develop a portfolio full of 24 art projects.  12 art projects will be part of a theme, the other 12 will show an exploration of the elements and principles or art


    Students will learn

    • Confidence and enthusiasm as they develop technical skills in two and three-dimensional form and composition
    • The ability to identify and solve problems in visual and tactile forms
    • How to develop ideas from initial attempts to final solutions
