Sarah Keen - Art

Hello Pioneer Elementary students and families

My name is Mrs. Keen, and I'm so excited to start teaching Art at Pioneer Elementary! I was raised in the Denver area (go Chatfield Chargers!), but I've spent the last 6 years living in North Carolina. I'm so excited to move home! I have missed the Rocky Mountains and all of the fun outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer

I graduated from Meredith College in Raleigh, NC, with a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education. I've been teaching for four years at an elementary school in Cary, North Carolina. I'm going to miss my school and my students, but I'm so looking forward to starting fresh and meeting all of you

When I'm not at school, I'm spending time with my husband, my baby, and my two cats! I love hiking, watching soccer and baseball, going to concerts at Red Rocks, and eating Mexican food. Do you like tacos? They are my favorite

My mom says I drew my first smiley face when I was 18 months old, and I never stopped making art! Between drawing and painting, ceramics and sculpture, printmaking, fiber arts, and photography, I have tried it all. My favorite artist is Vincent Van Gogh, and I still love to color in coloring books! I encourage my students to celebrate and explore the unique differences that make them who they are

I look forward to meeting y'all (I sure have been living in the South a while)

Sincerely, Mrs. Keen
