EAST COBB MIDDLE SCHOOL VISUAL ARTS
MRS. ANGELA D. FRUTOZ,
Angela Frutoz has been teaching at East Cobb Middle School since 2009. As an artist and teacher, an important aspect of Angela’s curriculum involves allowing students to have a hands-on experience in every facet of the creative process.
Her teaching style is to understand her students’ unique interests and needs, taking the time to know each student as they learn the art process. Angela strives to help students discover a deeper level of artistic thought, and support them as they apply it to their own artwork, regardless of their level of ability.
She believes that Art is a basic necessity to be included in the education of all children. She is intent on passing on her understanding of the feelings and focus of well-known artists, their art, and their art- making. Simply put, teaching brings Angela great joy.
Angela has been teaching Art for over 20 years. She is a 1999 graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, where she majored in Communication Arts and Design, and Art Education.
