Carly Powell

My name is Carly Powell, and I am thrilled to be the Art Teacher here at Woodfin Elementary!  I live in Asheville, with my husband and our many pets.  We have 2 dogs (Quigley Wagmire and Indiana Bones), 2 cats (Evie and Catsby), 1 fish (Fincent Van Gogh), and 10 chickens.

I was lucky to grow up here in Buncombe County Schools.  I graduated from North Buncombe High School in 2006, and got my Bachelor of Fine Arts from UNC-Asheville in 2011.  After several exciting years working in after school and summer camp programs, I found my way into back into the school system as a Title I Paraprofessional at North Buncombe Elementary.  My time there solidified my passion and drive to work in education, and I went back to UNCA to earn my teaching certification as a K-12 Art Teacher.  I've been teaching since 2015, and have worked with students of every age from Pre-K to 12th grade!

In my classroom we do a lot more than just drawing pretty pictures.  I am a strong believer that Art should provide students with the opportunity to experience skills and concepts from their core classroom in a whole new light.  I believe in multidisciplinary learning and with in providing our students with a strong global, multicultural, and well-rounded background through the arts.  In Art Class we get to learn about everything -  from the calendars of the ancient Aztecs to the anatomy of a jellyfish!  Students will get to create art using a variety of media such as paint, clay, and even recycled materials throughout the year.  They will get the opportunity to see and explore art from countries all over the world!
