Erinne Roundy Even before I had a family of my own, I knew I wanted to teach art to kids.  I wanted to show kids what options they had available to visually express themselves.  When I graduated from Weber State University with a BS in Visual Communications/Design n 1998, I used what I learned from school, and from my various work and personal experiences throughout the years to help me grow as a creative individual and as an art teacher.  Currently, I am teaching Art Foundations at North Davis Preparatory Academy in Layton, Utah.  For the past 9 years, I have run a successful after-school art program for elementary-aged kids and I’ve also been involved in my school’s annual art auction fundraising event.  I’m always on the look-out for opportunities to expose kids and myself to creative endeavors.
