• About Me  
     Mrs. Blakely  

    Hello! This is my twelfth year teaching Art at Atkins High School.  I teach all the Visual Art classes and 3D Design/Art for Engineers class. I also coach the Art Showcase Team. Last year we took top honors in both the regional and state competition. You do not have to be an art student to participate on the Art Showcase Team but I do request that you attend some of the meetings. Our club will meet on Tuesdays from 3:45 until 4:45 pm. 

    I am a graduate of Winston-Salem State University and Guilford Technical Community College.  Prior to teaching I worked as a Technical  Illustrator/Artist for AT&T and Lucent Technologies. I was born in North Carolina and equally love both it's mountains and beaches. I also love art! I enjoy going to art museums, art and craft shows and making art. I take classes at the Sawtooth School for Visual Art as often as my schedule permits. 

    "Creativity is intelligence having fun" so lets have some fun.
