Welcome Parents & Students!
Welcome to the newly created art department home page for Cambria Elementary. My name is Jessica Davis, I am the art teacher for grades 1-5 in the building. I have been with the Central Cambria School District for 7 years. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Art Education from California University of Pennsylvania and it is my personal belief that the arts should be used to enhance our students curriculum, in order to reach all types of learners.
All of my lessons are based on the Pennsylvania Department of Education's State Standards for the Arts and Humanities and the Standards Aligned System. I also participate with grades 2 and 3 in co-teaching activities for our Interventions and Enrichment program (referred to as "IE" by the students and faculty).
All of the materials we use in art class are age appropriate and non-toxic. However, not all of them wash out of fabrics easily, so I always suggest to the students that they bring in an art shirt to school to cover their clothes and protect them from accidental stains.
This website is something new I am doing, so check back for updates and examples of student work. Feel free to use the Contact Me section to send me your questions, comments or concerns.
I feel so privileged to be teaching your students. I can't wait to see what they will create next!
