Teacher Profile: Mrs. Benton

Mrs. Benton is our secondary art teacher at MDCA.  She studied art education at Florida State University, and has taught K-12 art since 2007.  Mrs. Benton loves to draw and paint, but colored pencil is her favorite medium.  

"The creative process is such a meaningful and personal experience, and I love sharing that with my students.  Art making has so many cross curricular connections and benefits, such as developing problem solving skills.  I love to see students work through the creative process, figuring out what works and what needs to be revised. It is such a blessing to see each student grow as an artist and a thinker."
