Visual Arts

My name is Karmen Lawing. I am a graduate of Lenoir Rhyne University. I have taught at Newton-Conover High School for seven years. I'm currently teaching Intermediate, Advanced, Proficient and AP art for the 2016 fall semester.

First of the Semester Outline:
Intermediate Students are currently working on their Folk Art rocks. These are rocks designed by the student to reflect different types of cultures. Each student will create an original piece and they will be sold at the Folk Art Festival Oct. 2nd. Students can help out for community service hours. Times are between 10:00-4:00pm and is located in down town Newton.
Advanced and Proficient: Students are working on their own Folk Art painting or creation. They are allowed to price their own piece and see how it does at the festival. We are also participating in the North Carolina Art Showcase. The prompt will be released this Thursday for students to come up with original designs based on a song.
