Rosemary McNeely will step into the position of Visual Arts teacher in the fall. Rosemary has worked with Presentation school students for many years, in numerous capacities.
Rosemary is a fine artist and teacher. She received a BFA from Massachusetts University of Art in Boston, and also studied at Philadelphia College of Art. She is a board member and teaching artist at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, and teaches art at various elementary schools in the valley. She has introduced the A.R.T.S. (Art Rewards the Student) program to Presentation 5th graders for the last 8 years, where our students have created projects for exhibit at the Museum.
Rosemary is trained in VTS, (Visual Thinking Strategy) and has shared this training with the teaching staff at Presentation. Rosemary looks forward to helping to build an art department that will enhance the school's curriculum and educate the students on the classic masters and contemporary artists that show right here in our own museum in Sonoma, and museums in San Francisco.
