My name is Tyra Lira and I will be teaching Art to our wonderful K-5th graders. As a San Diego native, I feel lucky to have grown up in a place with such rich culture and appreciation for art. My personal art practices are printmaking and drawing and that is where I find most of my joy in creating. My educational background in Studio Arts will allow me to teach our students to experiment and explore a variety of mediums. My hopes and dreams for the class are to celebrate the cultures of our community while teaching lasting foundations that will build our students into artists.
