Miss Molloy's Website

Welcome to my landing page, you seekers and explorers of Visual Art and Creativity!  I aim for students to learn to "think like an aritst," as they develop their critical thinking skills through hands-on studio practice, turn to art history for reference and inspiration, and develop their capacities to discuss and reflect on their own and others' visual artworks.  I keep a fully-developed and resource-packed Google site (note: it is not ADA compliant), so if you would like access it, please send me an e-mail requesting so.  I also keep updated Google Classrooms for each of my classes.  The best way to reach me is through e-mail, but feel free to call me.  Stay colorful and always curious!
