Mitchell, Laura - Visual Arts
Ms. Laura Mitchell, NBMS Art TeacherWelcome to the Wonderful World of Art!
Teaching middle school art is my passion!  I grew up in Greenville, SC and got my BFA in Drawing and Painting at the University of Georgia and my Masters in Art Education from Western Carolina. I've been teaching in the public and private sector for over 16 years.  I am pursuing my Global Educator Digital Badge and National Board Certification this year.  I am also Region 8 Coordinator of the North Carolina Art Education Association, Member of the NBMS SIT Committee, and Sponsor of the Blackhawk Chapter of the National Junior Art Honor Society. 
I love to travel and spent two weeks this summer with Go Global NC visiting schools in South Africa. I have also traveled to Kenya, China, Japan, Italy, Switzerland, Mexico, Jamaica, and Canada. Besides teaching art and traveling I love to paint and hand build sculptures in clay, explore the world with my three kids, run competitively, and notice and appreciate the small beautiful things in life that often go by unnoticed!
