Welcome to my class! I am Amy Ramsey, and I am so excited to be a part of Madison Avenue. I am looking forward to spending this year immersing your child in a variety of creative and fun artistic experiences.
This year will be an exciting year in the art room. We will have an EPIC year studying the elements of art and principles of design. Students will learn the basics of art while also studying techniques used by master artists from around the world and throughout history.
We are fortunate at MAE to have art included in our special area class routine. Many elementary schools throughout our state are not able to fund an art program in their schools. Madison County Schools feels that art is vital to fostering creative thinking in our students. Our art class is now funded by our school district, with the help of Holiday Heirlooms as a small fundraiser to help us purchase additional art supplies to complement our art experiences. Arts on the Avenue is an annual art exhibition for our MAE community each spring! This is an opportunity for parents to view the creative results of our yearlong efforts. We appreciate the wonderful support and generosity from Madison County Schools and our MAE parents that help our art program thrive!
This is my eleventh year at Madison Avenue, and my 15th year teaching at the Elementary level. I am originally from Marietta, Georgia, but I have lived here in Madison for the past 25 years. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Georgia. GO DAWGS! My husband and I have three wonderful sons, ages 22, 20 and 15. I enjoy crafts, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family.
