Mrs. Julie Vassar

This is my second year teaching Art at Stratton and I am so excited to be a part of this amazing school. Although I first started out my teaching career in the kindergarten classroom, I have been teaching art since 2013. I have found that teaching young artists is truly my passion. I love to introduce students to different mediums and teach them that they are all artists. I love seeing students skills, confidence and excitement grow from one year to the next. 



  • Welcome to the Stratton Elementary Art Page!

    In Art Class students will complete projects while learning about the Elements of Art and the Principals of Design. My goal is to introduce all grade levels to a variety of mediums to create a lifelong excitement for the arts. Be sure to ask your child what they are working on during art and check out the hallways for the lastest creations!

    We will be focusing on the Colorado Academic Standards:

    1. Observe and Learn to Comprehend

    2. Envision and Critique to Reflect

    3. Invent and Discover to Create

    4. Relate and Connect to Transfer
