My name is Phoebe McAllister and I am looking forward to teaching K-8 Virtual Art this year. I graduated from the University of Central Missouri in 2019 with my BSE in Art Education K-12. I am honored to continue my first year of teaching with Kansas City International Academy. Through art, I want my students to be able to express themselves as well as having the opportunity to experience success in my classroom, connect with the community and create goals that reach beyond their compulsory educational careers. I’m passionate to use art to foster growth and development within my students as well as myself. When I am not making art with my students I am making my own art emphasizing in printmaking, fibers, and digital illustrations. I love being surrounded by my husband, friends, and family when I am not at school. Through my art classes I am excited to inspire creativity and skills that my students can use here at KCIA and throughout their lives.
