HPE Artists Make Their Mark!

If you visit Ms. Kelsey Livingston’s classroom on any given day at Hyde Park Elementary, you will hear laughter and chatter as you are surrounded by innovations and color.
Ms. Livingston teaches art to Hyde Park 4K through 5th graders with a contagious flow of energy. She conveys information about some of the famous artists in history while linking in hands-on opportunities for kids to take on the style of these masters! With a Bachelor of Art Education degree from the University of Kansas and a Master of Arts in Art Education from Corcoran College of Art and Design, Ms. Livingston is equipped each day with an extensive educational background and a love for the arts!

“I was fortunate to have many influential art teachers in my life and hope to make a difference in the lives of my students as well. I believe that art has the potential to provide students with intriguing new perspectives that cannot be mirrored by any other subject. It can enhance ingenuity by developing imagination and creative thinking, and enable students to envision alternative solutions to a problem when they might otherwise believe they have hit a dead end,” stated Ms. Livingston. You are invited to stop by to visit this creative classroom - you will see Hyde Park Elementary students of all ages expanding their creative opportunities and flourishing in this elementary studio of innovation!
