Mrs. Katie Wagner » Welcome!

Welcome!

My name is Katie Wagner, art teacher at Spaulding Elementary. I have each class at Spaulding at least once per week and have enjoyed getting to know so many students and families over the years! I am very excited about this new year and can't wait to meet each and every one of you!!!  This year we also have the awesome opportunity to have two student educators from the DAAP program at the University of Cincinnati.  Mr Ryan Kerr will be with us from the beginning of the year through October, and then Ms. Lindsey Klump will be with us from October through December.  Both Mr. Kerr and Ms. Klump will be working with the children teaching them new and exciting ways to be creative!!  Thank you for stopping by my webpage!  Please take some time to read a little more about me and if have questions on the art program, do not hesitate to contact me through email.

We are working on constructing space ships in some of our 5th grade art classes!  Students create the vessel by first building with found materials and must pay close attention to balance, symmetry, and size perimeters.  These are then covered in plaster and eventually painted.  Its a messy job, but someone has to do it :)

Day of the Dead Parade

The 5th grade students learned about the Mexican holiday, El Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) and created skull masks similar to the skulls used in Mexican and Aztec cultures during this three day celebration of souls lost.  Special thanks to Ms. Christina Denney for editing and creating this awesome video showcasing the work of our students!
