Mrs. Erb - Art Educator
I have been an Art Teacher for 24 years, and have been teaching in the Cranston Public School System for 23 of those years!
I knew at an early age that I wanted to become an Art Teacher... but I also wanted to paint. I especially wanted to learn how to paint with oils. My mother found a local artist who agreed to teach me. I painted on Saturday mornings in a basement studio with a few older students. I was only ten years old, but knew that teaching and making art were for me!
I was very fortunate to have a family who supported my art making and did not mind if I made a mess in the basement, or got paint on my clothes! Many art lessons and studio classes later, I received my Bachelor of Science in Art Education and Master of Art in Art Education, both from Rhode Island College. I enjoy all types of art making, including painting, sculpture, collage, sewing, and art doll construction.
