Mrs. Debbie Akery



Hello!  I am Debbie Akery, and this is my 21st year of teaching art at Thayer Elementary.

My goal is for every student at our school to learn to express themselves through art.  We engage in many different art processes.  We paint, draw, make prints, and use sculpture techniques.  The techniques we use become progressively more complex as the students move through the grade levels.

Keep up to date with what's happening in your child's art class by registering on Artsonia, Thayer's Art Gallery.  And, don't forget to invite family and friends to join your child's official Artsonia Fan Club. Our young artists LOVE to get compliments on their work -- please leave a comment for an artist you know! Then become a member of their FAN CLUB, that way you will get updates as soon as they have new artwork published!
