Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Lane Bolyard

Hello! My name is Mrs. Bolyard and I am excited to be teaching Art at Cardinal Ridge for the 7th year. I have been working in Loudoun County Public Schools since 2005. I graduated from Towson University with a Bachelor of Arts degree and I have a Virginia Education Visual Arts License in Art for Pre-K-12th grade. Since 1995, I have been a professional artist and muralist; specializing in painting artworks, Trompe l’oeil and mixed media pieces.

My dual interests in art and children are my major reasons for becoming an art teacher.   Teaching art is a path which allows me to continue to explore art while encouraging and facilitating exploration and understanding by others.

 I want to be a role model for all young artists who come and learn in my classroom.  My desire is to help students learn to express themselves during their school years and I believe with my knowledge and life experience I can help them to have a great learning experience.

 I look forward to creating with you in the Art room and I cannot wait to see what this year has to bring!
