ARTIST AND aRTS eDUCATOR
Hello! My name is Madeline Denton and I am an art teacher in Raleigh, North Carolina. I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education. I grew up in North Carolina, and I have also spent time living in East Tennessee and Richmond, Virginia.
I am inspired by people, nature, and the simple beauty of every day life. To me, art is a gift and a tool. Art is a vessel for bringing people together to seek a deeper purpose. Art can be a tool to bring peace, joy, and understanding in ourselves and with others.
As an arts educator, I believe it is important to encourage my students to respond to that in a way that brings hope and healing. I want my students to feel free to be creative and to respond in an authentic way to what inspires them.
