Teaching art remotely a creative endeavor
January 6, 2021
Going digital has been the norm in public education since the COVID-19 pandemic forced classes on-line last spring.
But within the La Conner Schools art department the learning curve has been less steep.
District tech director Ryan Hiller brought a digital art class into the curriculum several years ago and last September veteran art teacher Patty Weber began teaching a technical art class on distance education platforms.
Weber, who majored in Fine and Applied Arts at the University of Oregon, leads a teleconferenced class designed for sixth graders through high school seniors.
