Ms. Amber Russell - Art & Library

Welcome to art with Mrs. Russell!

This is Mrs. Russell’s 16th year at Merryhill School.  A Las Vegas native, Mrs. Russell graduated high school from the prominent Las Vegas Academy School of Visual and Performing Arts.  She received her undergraduate degree from Northern Arizona University and is currently working on the completion of her Masters degree.  Art was Mrs. Russell’s favorite subject in school from a small child.  She could not wait for the one day a week that she had art class.  It is with this passion and excitement that the path to share and educate children about the world of art began.

Mrs. Russell’s favorite artist’s are Vincent van Gogh, Marc Chagall and Sandro Botticelli.  Van Gogh was a Post-Impressionist, Chagall a Surrealist, and Botticelli a Renaissance artist.  There are so many different art styles that students will get to learn and experience in art class.  During the school year as the children’s knowledge grows each student will be able to discuss their favorite artist and style, and why it is special to them.
