Ms. Tara Cunningham

Art-Intro to Art, 2D, 3D and Advanced Art

This will be my 12th year of teaching Art and my 7th year here at Armstrong Middle School. I absolutely love working with middle schoolers and am passionate about Art of all kinds! 

I graduated from the University of Kansas with a BFA in metalsmithing/design and worked for 5 years as a bench jeweler/designer in Kansas City. After beginning a family and moving to Texas, I decided that I wanted to teach art and finished my Educational coursework to do so and have been teaching ever since. 

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my two teenage boys and our two dogs. You can ususally catch me walking my dogs, at a high school sporting event, watching my boys or doing pottery in my free time. 

I'm looking forward to this new year and am so thankful to be a part of this amazing Armstrong family!
