Cathie Hagen, Art Teacher



Hello! My name is Cathie Hagen. I am so excited to have the opportunity to share my passion for creating art with students at Madison Elementary School!


I have been teaching elementary/middle school art for the past 9 years in Valders and Fort Atkinson. My approach to teaching art includes more than art making. I believe students should also learn about art history, aesthetics, and art criticism. Art units will focus on building basic foundational skills in a variety of 2-D and 3-D media: drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, sculpture, and ceramics, and will include a variety of different artists, styles, and cultures. In addition, students will participate in aesthetic and art criticism activities to help develop an appreciation for the arts.
