Welcome to Art!

  • About Me:
    My name is Allison Baumann, and I live in Mesa with my husband, Mike, and our dog, Kimbo. This is going to be my 5th year at Cactus Canyon Junior High and my 8th year teaching Art. I attended Arizona State University (go Sun Devils!) and graduated in 2013 with my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Drawing and Painting. Before becoming a Cougar, I taught Kindergarden through 8th grade art in Phoenix.
    I believe that art classes can provide valuable life skills for all students, such as generating ideas, problem solving, and executing a project. Many students don't realize their own artistic abilities, though I believe all students have a unique perspective that they can learn to communicate visually. It is my job to help them find and develop their artistic voice by exploring different materials, techniques, and approaches.
    When I am not teaching, I enjoy making my own art, doing yoga, and being outdoors in the Arizona desert. I am proud to be a Cactus Canyon Cougar and looking forward to a great year!!!
