Karen Meldrum has been teaching art at Chandler Unified School District for 15 years. She has been at Basha High School since 2005 and teaches Drawing and Painting 1 &2, AP Studio Art: Drawing and 3/D. She is currently teaching an art survey quarter class for AMS grade 6.

My Education and Professional Background

Ms. Meldrum has a degree in Art Education from ASU as well as a concurrent degree in Studio Art: Drawing, Painting and Ceramics. She received her Masters from NAU in Secondary Education in 2004.

My Educational Philosophy

: I believe as with any other skill, that drawing and painting, if practiced with repetition and correct preliminary exercises, can be learned and perfected. Learning the basics and building upon the necessary skills through proper exercises will ensure success from every student. Many of her students have continued their studies in the arts at such renown art schools such as CCAD, Ohio, ASU, School of Architecture, NYU, Rhode island Art Institute and San Francisco Art Institute.
