Outstanding Art Teacher of Northeast Ohio image Outstanding Art Teacher of Northeast Ohio

Congratulations to Brush High School art teacher, Sarah Curry on receiving Northeast Ohio’s Outstanding Art Teacher of the Year  from The Ohio Art Education Association.  She was recognized and received her award at their annual state conference in Toledo, Ohio last week. When asked to summarize her teaching philosophy Ms. Curry was quoted, “I have discovered that giving students the power and faith to succeed when few expect greatness from them is one of the greatest gifts we can give. I intend to train critical thinkers to reflect on themselves and the world around them. After all, the best parts of both art and life are getting messy and becoming enlightened.”  Not only is Ms. Curry a full-time teacher at Brush, she is also a professional artist, regularly exhibiting her work at various galleries across the country. She is represented by Hedge Gallery and you can find examples of her work on her website:

This is the seventeenth year Ms. Curry has been teaching art at Brush. She currently teaches, Painting, Drawing, Advanced Painting and Drawing and AP Studio Art.
