Degrees and Certifications:
Hi everyone! My name is Elle Halliday and I am so excited to be returning as the art teacher at Lowes Island Elementary! This is my 13th year as an elementary art teacher and my 5th year with Loudoun County Public Schools. I am an artist, teacher, wife and mama to my daughter Willow. I LOVE dogs, patterns, nature, photography, art galleries, traveling, dining out and spending time with my family.
I grew up in Buffalo, NY and enjoy going back to visit. Buffalo is the city of great neighbors and has a great arts community and delicious eats. I received my BFA in Graphic Design and attended Pratt Institute and Buffalo State College. I furthered my education by getting my Master's in Painting and Mixed Media through Virginia Commonwealth University.
Community is very important to me! Over the years, I have been an active volunteer with children, food pantries, as well as, the arts. I have shown my artwork in art galleries in Fredericksburg, VA and Buffalo, NY. I am a practicing artist and have my own business on Etsy: ElizabethHallidayART.
I'm so excited to get to know all my students and have them develop their art skills through creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking. Art is about ideas!!! I look forward to working with you and letting your imagination soar! This WILL be a wonderful school year :)
