• Welcome to the ART STUDIO:

    a fun place to explore creative ideas!

      In our Art Studio, the guiding principles are based on the TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) philosophy:   

                      • What do artists do?
                      • The child is the artist.
                      • The classroom is the child's studio.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know your children and supporting their development as artists!

    We will explore drawing, painting, printmaking, fiber, clay, and sculpture using recycled materials.

    We will learn about the 8 Studio Habits of Mind, which are helpful habits for artists and all people.

Ms. Julie Carino

Hello Northfield Elementary Families -

I am very excited to get back to the NES Art Studio with your creative young people!

While I am an experienced educator, I consider myself a lifelong learner and I love learning new things. My teaching career began in 1995 in New York City. I have worked in progressive private schools in NYC, community organizations in NYC, the Hudson Valley, and Pennsylvania, as well as public schools in Pennsylvania. I find teaching deeply satisfying. I feel privileged to be a part of the moment when a learner opens up, a shift happens, and there is new understanding.

As a practicing artist, I am most often inspired by landscapes, memories, and thought. I especially enjoy working on large paintings outside.

Looking forward to the creative journey -
