Welcome to Mrs Perry's Art Studio

An online library of art lessons designed to support K – 6th educators in teaching art standards required by Common Core Curriculum.

Dedicated to providing teachers with online art lessons for their students.

Mrs. Perry and her dog Beulah will inspire students to express their imagination through art.

Common Core Curriculum

Creating an art project that corresponds with the student’s curriculum not only helps the student retain their knowledge but expresses their creativity while investing in the curriculum.

SEL/ART COVID Recovery Program

Mrs. Perry’s Art Studio and East Farms STEAM Magnet School Counselor, Savannah Maxwell, have teamed up and developed a Covid Recovery Art Program that combines SEL with Fine Art blending the two programs to help every student to begin the healing from the pandemic. The lessons are designed to promote engagement, encourage motivation, develop resiliency and gives hope to our students.

This SEL/ART Program teaches the Washington SEL Standards, ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors of Student Success, and OSPI Art Standards.

Mrs. Perry’s Art Studio Video Library was created to support educators and inspire artists! With a click of a button, high quality, standards-based art lessons are ready to access! Each lesson is presented with step-by-step instructional strategies, rich vocabulary, and an opportunity to stretch the imagination. All you need is a pencil and an eraser!

It’s so much fun that we hope educators will want to join their students in the creative process!

Hi, I’m Mrs. Sami Perry

I am a professional sculpture artist based out of Spokane Washington who uses many different mediums to create my work.

In 2002 I was hired as the Resident Artist for a local school district. I set out to not only teach art but to incorporate the student’s curriculum with the projects as well as teach elements of designs recommended by OSPI State Learning Standards. I have worked closely with educators creating art projects students can invest their creativity and imagination into.

The video lessons in this curriculum are some of my favorites. Students have a natural innate love for art. Art is a natural way to teach, have fun, and learn all at the same time.

Working with students of all ages, I can promise art inspires creative skills, builds self-esteem, develops a sense of self-importance and individuality, encourages self-expression, and stimulates the imagination. In addition, several studies show children that participate in art class benefit on several levels:

 

  • Fosters a joy of learning.
  • Supports intellectual, emotional, and social growth.
  • Prepares leaders of the future.
  • Inspires their imagination.

Lessons that inspire kids to love art!

I believe the true purpose of arts education is not necessarily to create more professional artists, musicians, or dancers. It’s to create more complete human beings who are critical thinkers, who have curious minds, who can lead productive lives.
