Hello, and welcome to Mr. Bender’s Art Studio. My name is Addison Bender and I will be your child’s artist teacher this school year. I’ve completed two degrees, a Bachelor in Fine Arts with a concentration in painting and a Master’s of Arts in Teaching, both degrees completed at George Mason University. I am excited to share my passion for the arts with your child, by creating meaningful artful problems that they will enjoy. Your child will be using a variety of art materials, such as paint, pencil, crayon, ink, and clay, to create both two and three dimensional art works that reflect their own personal experiences. I aim to boost self confidence within my curriculum by allowing students to share with one another their personal journeys at the end of Art Lessons.
