Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Amanda Skillings
I am the 8th and 9th grade art teacher! I am an alumni of West Virginia University and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts- emphasis in oil painting with a certification Pre-K through Adult. This is my sixth year teaching in Loudoun County Public Schools. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I absolutely love this area and the community.
As the great Pablo Picasso said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.”
I love the creative minds of my students. I find it so interesting how they can take my instructions and make it their own. One of my favorite things about teaching is seeing that spark when an art technique finally clicks and the students get it! Being able to see the growth throughout the semester and knowing I had a hand in it- is the biggest accomplishment. My classroom is a place where everyone will create, learn and become little artist.
