3rd-5th Grade

Welcome to Miss Porcaro’s Art room!

I believe that it is extremely important to cultivate our students’ unique motivation for visual expression! Developing our students’ imagination through visual investigations and creative mindfulness, empowers our youth to originate new visual artifacts, and illuminate the world around them with their own innovative conceptions!
