Welcome to Art at Bonner Elementary!
I am Joy Blewett (students call me Miss Joy) and this is my second year as Art Teacher at Bonner Elementary. I moved to Rochester from Minneapolis where I had previous elementary teaching experience in Minnetonka and Minneapolis School District. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and a Masters in Education from the University of Minnesota. I am very passionate about art, believe every child is an artist and look forward to teaching students at Bonner what it means to think like an artist and develop skills as an artist.
A is for Attention - listening, following directions and focusing on art projects
R is for Respect - respecting and being kind to others as well as art materials
T is for Teamwork - collaborating, working together, helping one another
