Ms. Kawaters


I have enjoyed teaching art at Southland College Prep for the past 10 years. I earned an undergraduate degree in Art Education from Western Illinois University and a Masters in Art Education at Eastern Illinois University in 2020. I currently teach 4 sections of Fine Art. Multiple sections meet at the same time and have students from all grade levels. Students are given ample time to complete their work in class so that work should not need to be done outside of class time if they use thier time wisely. If a student finds that they are falling behind they can get additional help by attending Art Club, going to Homework Club, or attending Saturday Homework Support. 

Students will be in one of the following classes:

A1-Intro to Art

A2-Drawing and Painting

A3-Studio Art

A4-Advanced Studio Art



I am the Art Club sponsor as well as the Anime Club sponsor. Club meeting day is subject to change based on student poll at the beginning of the year. All students are welcome to join!
