Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Aaron Kolkay
I am a proud graduate of Illinois State University, Normal, having earned a bachelor's degree in fine arts, as well as an art education degree. I have also obtained my master’s degree from Concordia University, in River Forest, Ill., in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis on English language learners.
It is my goal to give students the most well rounded art experience that I can. I use the disciple-based art education approach to my teaching strategies. This not only gives the students the best chance for successful art production, but it also promotes art history, art criticism, and art aesthetics. By discussing and studying art history, criticism, and aesthetics students gain an essential understanding of art itself. I also believe that learning should be fun, and that each day in class, will provide students with new art skills while enjoying their learning atmosphere.
