• I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this uncertain time. I also hope you're all able to make some art while you're stuck at home! I've been working on my watercolor skills! Here are a couple recent projects. I'm also learning to knit, and practicing piano and violin during my downtime. Calvin, my almost-5-year-old, is enjoying his Legos and watching *lots* of Disney+. His new favorite is Star Wars. If you've been working on art, I would love to see it! Snap a picture of it and email me, and I'll put it up in the student gallery! I miss all of you!

Ms. Mandy Hansen

I teach beginning art for 7th and 8th grade, drawing/painting for 8th grade, and pottery/sculpture for 8th grade at LCMS.  

On this site, you can find project descriptions and due dates, as well as the powerpoint presentations for note-taking. Some projects will include printable worksheets, but all artwork will be done in the studio (room 116).

 I started teaching at LCMS in 2008.  During the spring I am the head track and field coach. For info on the LCMS track and field program, click this LINK. I also coach youth ski racing at Bogus Basin ski area in the wintertime. 

I live in the North End of Boise with my husband, Jason, and our son, Calvin.  During our free time we enjoy skiing, hiking, camping, and gardening.   
This site will be updated weekly as projects are assigned in class.
