Ms. Keenan

Art is everywhere around us. I always ask people to think of a situation where art is not present. It is hard to find one! I believe art is for everyone and that all people (not just a select few) can create beautiful art. My role at Widefield High School is to inspire students to create works that are personalized. Everyone is unique and each students artwork is unique. It is a reflection of who they are. Art is a way to record the world around us and show what is happening right now. It is an always changing book about life. I encourage everyone to create art and make their own page for that book.
