Hello Skaggs Stars! My name is Ilene Baumel and I am the Art Specialist. I grew up in Kansas City but made my way to Texas via The University of Texas (Hook 'Em!) where I studied Applied Learning and Development with a specialization in Art. My husband Britt and I have lived in Plano for a long time, where we are raising our 3 kids - ages 18, 15, 12 - and one very smart Border Collie!
I am passionate about the Arts in Education and believe every child has a right to explore their talent and creativity. In the Skaggs Art Studio, we will explore the art process with thoughtfulness, creating, reflecting, and whole lot of fun! I'm looking forward to a year of celebrating Art, celebrating Skaggs, and celebrating being together!
