Ciao!! Welcome!! Benvenuto!!
Hello my Artists!
I hope to see you soon
in the Melrose Art Studio~
Let's create together!
Greetings, Jamestown Families!
My name is Erica Connolly, and I am very honored to be your Artist-Teacher at Jamestown Melrose School! This will be my fifth year teaching Art in Jamestown, and my 22nd year as an Elementary Art Educator.
I too, am proudly, a Jamestown Schools parent! My son is enrolled at the Lawn School, and my daughters attend high school at the Met in Newport. My family and I are all very excited to be a part of our kind and caring Jamestown community~
As an Art Educator, I am eager to guide my young artists towards an appreciation of Art, Art History, and our beautiful coastal island surroundings. I believe it is through authentic Art Studio experiences, and student-centered learning, that students will be able to awaken their creativity, and inner artists. As a supportive Art Studio community, we will explore a wide variety of media and techniques, and make important discoveries that lead to positive self-expression, and a life-long love of Art!
I am truly excited to meet each and every one of our new artists and families, and to see all of our returning friends again soon! I look forward to collaborating with you all, as an integral partner in the nurturing of the artistic endeavors and academic excellence of our outstanding students of Jamestown!
Best Wishes for another great year of Art,
