Art Makes Me Happy!

Zarina – future art teacher

I want to be an art teacher because I love art and like to teach children. I have been dreaming about being an art teacher. I am passionate about art. I want to pass my passion of art onto other children.

When I was a child I used to love to draw, paint or color. I have always wanted to be an artist. I like art because it stretches my mind and makes me use my imagination. On the days that I have art at school I cannot wait until it is time for class, and I am always happy in art class. Whenever I have free time, I always draw, paint or color.

I need a bachelor's degree in art and a teaching certificate to be an art teacher. I will have to go to college and take lots of art classes to learn different art skills. I will also have to take classes about teaching so that I will be a good teacher. I will have to get experience working in a school as an art teacher.

There will always be opportunities for art teachers all over the world because children all over the world need to learn how to create art and love art. I want children to learn about art and to use their imagination and creativity.

I researched the steps to become an art teacher on many different websites on the internet. I typed in "How do you become an art teacher?" on the Google search engine. Most of the websites said that I needed a bachelor's degree in art, a teaching certificate and experience in teaching.
