Cheryl Wilson

About Me

I love nature, adventure, creativity, art, and people.  I believe everyday is a gift to be used wisely.  


Mission Statement

 The Short Version:  If I wake up and get dressed, someone is learning something.  

 The Long Version:  I strive to learn something new everyday, contribute to society constructively and creativly, remembering to be truthful and grateful always.   My mission is to share my excitement for learning and creativity with my students and guide them in earning an education so that they will have the tools necessary for success.  The bravery, boldness and focus developed in art class transfers to every facet of life.


My Interests

 I enjoy being creative in a variety of ways including sewing, building upcycling sculpture, drawing, painting, and much more.  I love to be outdoors walking, swimming and appreciating the vast variety.  Indoors, creating art, reading, baking, jewelry making, and sewing are some of my indoor interests.
