About Me

Hi, my name is Kate Weller.  It is my third year here at Stiles Point and I am very excited!  I am originally from Ohio, where I went to Columbus College of Art and Design for my foundations courses in art.  I then transferred to The Ohio State University and earned my Bachelor's degree in Art Education.  After graduating, I completed a year of my graduate studies.  I have lived in Charleston for seven years now and on James Island for five years.  This is my sixth year teaching in Charleston County at the elementary level.  In my spare time I enjoy racing sailboats and being on the water.  I also like to read, create artwork and listen to music.

Primary is "First"
Kindergarten is learning about the Primary Colors.  These three colors can make all of the other colors.  Check out this video about Primary Colors!: OK GO-Primary Colors
They are creating a collage inspired by Piet Mondrian, an artist known  for using the primary colors in his work.

Special 5th Grade Project

Mrs. Eiserhardt's class started working on the Giant Greeting Card to put on display at the Festival of Lights this year.  Each student will work on a different part of the card.  The theme this year is "Let Your Heart Be Light.."  Stay tuned to see the final product!

I am  super excited to be back for the school year! We have a lot of awesome things happening in the art room this Fall!  During week one, we are already looking at all different kinds of artwork.  During week two, all classes will be starting their first projects!  I am looking forward to seeing all the great artwork to come from this year's students at Stiles Point!
