Mrs. Joy T. Dobson

 Hello, and welcome to Art!  I am a twenty-one year veteran teacher who is honored to be a part of the faculty of Renaissance High School. 

I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and Printmaking from the University of Idaho.  I later moved to Tucson, Arizona to pursue my master's degree in Art Education at the University of Arizona.  Over the course of my teaching career, I have been fortunate to teach art at all levels: pre-school, elementary, middle, and high school as well as at the college level as adjunct faculty.  I am passionate about art and its essential role in culture and am excited and honored to share my love of the subject and knowledge with my students.


I am looking forward to an exciting year together!
