Laverdiere, Katy - Art



My name is Katy Laverdiere and I'm very happy to be the visual arts teacher at JES. My hope is that all of my students feel encouraged, appreciated, and loved. I believe in finding beauty and creativity in our day to day lives so our goal in each class is to develop an appreciation for the art that surrounds us and the art we create ourselves.

I received my Bachelor's in Visual Communication Design from Virginia Tech in 2016 and my Masters of Art in Teaching Art Education from Western Carolina University in 2019. While I love all forms of art, I am particularly drawn towards watercolor, typography, and hand lettering. I love filling my life with a lot of time in nature so I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, running, and a lot of quality time with my loved ones and my sweet dog, Henry.
