Welcome to Slanging Paint in 160!

The goal for this year!

The goal for this year!

Welcome to room 160! My name is Lauren Luna and I am a professional artist holding a Masters of Fine Arts and Special Education.  I will be sharing my passion with over 700 elementary aged children during the 2013-14 school year! I am extremely excited to start this school year, and see what our future Picasso’s will come up with!

This year they will be challenged not just to think outside of the box, but to think as if the box doesn’t exist!

I look forward to hearing your feedback and ideas! Let’s have a great year!


About Ms. Luna

Here we go! Year number four! Teaching artist at Mark Twain Elementary! I started my career in 2002, in the New York City Schools as a Special Education Middle School teacher. Moving back to my hometown of Columbus, Ohio, I continued teaching Special Education and also began teaching after school and summer art programs. Moving again to Houston, Texas. I have taught all levels and abilities from kindergarten to college and am very excited to be teaching here at Mark Twain! I am also a professional artist and designer that shows work worldwide. I have been featured in the Houston Chronicle, Austin Fashion Week, Houston Press, and at the Grassi Museum of the Applied Arts in Germany. I hold a Masters of Science in Special Education from Manhattan College and a Masters of Fine Arts from the Academy of Art University. I currently am teaching grades kindergarten through fifth and am an adjuct art professor at Alvin Community College.
