Welcome to Art with Ms. Funk!
I am so excited to join the Academy Endeavour staff and am looking forward to creating a wide variety of artwork with your student! I have been teaching in the Colorado Springs area for fourteen years, twelve of which have been at the elementary level. Creating with children is my passion. It is my goal to have every student find their own voice, and to help them visually communicate their ideas. I truly love the innate creative spirit of kids!
Upon receiving my Master's degree in Art Education from Iowa State University, my husband and I quickly found our way to Colorado. We have three children that keep us very busy. When we are not on a cross country track, baseball or rugby field, we love to hike and camp. We also enjoy spending time tending to our little urban farm. There is rarely a time when I don't have a project of my own underway. Some of my current favorites are painting children's murals and upcycling furniture. We are grateful to call the beautiful state of Colorado our home!
