  • Hi Mark Twain Families!

    Welcome to the Cougar Art Studio! My name is Mr. Hancock and I am excited to be the art teacher at Mark Twain Elementary School this year. Together, we will be exploring the wide world of the visual arts while experimenting and creating using many different art media. This year in art, we will be doing all sorts of fantastic things. We’ll learn about color theory, drawing techniques, basic construction, and much more. We’ll also take a journey around the world studying various cultures and their artwork. All the while, I’ll be inserting math, language arts and social studies connections for some cross-curricular learning. I want all students to leave art with a strong capability to solve problems creatively using critical thinking skills. My overall goals are to motivate students to express themselves visually and creatively through artistic thought and action while they build a foundation of art knowledge and skills through the Elements of Art and Principles of Design.
