    Welcome to the art department website.  My name is Devra Brewer and I am looking forward to working with, and getting to know each of you. Throughout the semester you will be developing artistic skills at a surprisingly rapid pace. You will be creating artwork using a variety of different art mediums and techniques including chalk pastels, graphite, acrylic paint, watercolor paint, papier mache, collage and printmaking, among other things. The class is project-based, but you will also be developing your art vocabulary, and your ability to look at and discuss artwork from various cultures and time-periods.

    The end of the year Student Art Show in May will be your opportunity to display the best piece of work from your semester portfolio to family, friends and the community. I will also host Monte Vista's 17th Annual Student Chalk Painting festival in May--80 student artists will participate in this spectacular all-day event! 

    I truly hope that your experience in art class this year will unleash your inner-artist, and cultivate a life long appreciation for the visual arts. Now...let's get to work and create some amazing artwork!!

    If you have any questions, concerns, or would just like to say hello, please feel free to email me at dbrewer@pleasantvalleysd.org.
