  • Hello!
    I'm Mrs. Larson, art teacher at Apollo Elementary School! I'm excited that you have visited my web page.  I have been teaching at Apollo for 5 years and it is a pleasure to work with such a creative and diverse group of children.  I hope to enrich education here with art projects that encourage problem-solving skills, build fine motor control, enhance imagination, and offer cultural/historical education.
     
    Your support is appreciated and I am happy to have you as part of our art community.  
     
    A little more about me:
    I am from Chicago and still live in the city with my husband and my son, Hawken, who is 2 years old!  I went to college at Millikin University and graduate school at the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago.  I have Bachelors degrees in Art Therapy and Art Education and a Master's Degree in Counseling Art Therapy.  I'm a registered certified Art Therapist.  I absolutely love teaching because I get to watch children express themselves, use their motor skills, and challenge their thinking to construct new, unique things.
