3rd-5th Grade Art
Julie Shanks teaches fine art to Country Day’s Lower School students in 3rd through 5th grade. Her studio curriculum encompasses art from all genres, cultures, and media. Using each grade level curriculum as a launching pad, Julie strives to make connections for students from art to academics. Deeper yet, she yearns to reach into the heart of each student to appreciate art as a tool of expression for their emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
Julie earned an A.A. in Art from Moorpark College in Southern California, a B.A. in art and a single subject teaching credential from California State University Sacramento. Before teaching at Country Day she taught pre-school and serves as a teacher’s aide in a high school RSP class.
