•    Kaylee LaBella Michell 

         Hello, my name is Kaylee LaBella Michell and I am the art teacher at Lyon Elementary. I have over 15 years of artmaking experience and training. I attended both Louisiana State University and Southeastern Louisiana University where I took numerous art studio classes, including: Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking, Photography, and Ceramics. In 2014, I graduated with honors from Southeastern Louisiana University with a bachelor’s degree in Art Education.

         I have been teaching for two and a half years and I am so happy to be apart of the Lyon family. My goal as an art teacher is to help students feel accomplished and important by creating artwork they can be proud of. I also strive to enhance their creativity and problem-solving skills. Through observing and practicing visual arts students develop visual literacy and visual communication skills. 

         This year in art students will experiment with pencil drawing, painting with tempera and watercolor paint, collage, oil pastels, and more. I look forward to this school year and what we will create together.
