My name is Rhonda Compton and I teach all the music and art classes at Cane Ridge Elementary School in Paris, Kentucky. I have degrees from UK and EKU in French, Elementary Education and a K-5 Teaching Certificati0n. I have spent my entire life in school and I am still here! Lucky am I to be able to create art and play music at work!
I hope that when any child attends my classes, he or she will not only have fun learning, but also continue to enjoy art and music as life long activities. We are bombarded daily with social media, television and radio saturated with images and sounds. Sadly, most of these images and sounds are 2-dimensional. In my class, while we will use these contemporary images and sounds to analyze the purposes and elements of art and music, and the principles of design, we also create images and sound in live, 3-dimensional fashion! My goal is for your child to feel better leaving my class than when he or she entered and to realize that we all are artists and we all are musicians! Life is art! Life is music! Let's enjoy all of that energy!
