Ms. Gately – Art Teacher

Office Hours: 

Welcome to the Art Room! My name is Ms. Gately and I am so happy to be joining the St. Stanislaus Community this year. I have been a K-8 Art Teacher since 2008, spending much of my career instructing Visual Arts Curriculum at the Holy Name Parish School in West Roxbury, MA. I am so excited to be sharing my skills as a Visual Arts Educator with the students at St. Stan’s. This year, the Visual Arts curriculum will focus on using different types of drawing and painting mediums and techniques, as well as learning about the lives and contributions of important artists and finally, several looks into art historical themes and concepts. The first guideline in the Art Room is that “Everybody is an Artist!”, in turn, my goal as a Visual Arts Educator is to create a program that is engaging, accessible and fun! We start out the year designing projects that are based on the students’ names or a self-portrait. In this way, it gives me the great opportunity to learn more about the students, as well as provide an environment in which students associate their identity with the artmaking process. I am looking forward to meeting the students at St. Stan’s and contributing to a colorful, creative school year!
