Ms. Samantha Seago
Hello! I am the art instructor at Lee County Elementary. I have a passion for the arts and enjoy creating. This passion started when I was in elementary school and only grew as I got older with every art class I took. I knew when I graduated high school that I wanted to make a career that was associated with art. I went on to college and that is when I discovered jewelry making. I fell in love with the process and everything about it! I have experience with soldering metals, mostly silver, brass, and copper and using precious stones such as turquoise and jade. I also love ceramics, creating collages, watercolor painting, drawing and much more!
The Art Story- Visual Art Movements, Artists, Ideas, and Topics…. Everything ART!
Tuxpaint- The program we have used in class over the years. You have to download it and it is free but you have to get your parents permission first! Once you download the program, you will need to go back and download stamps if you want them as well.
PaperPlane- HINTS for paper airplanes: 1)Use copier paper. Paper should be strong enough to hold a shape and light enough to stay aloft. Avoid newsprint (too flimsy) and poster board (too heavy). 2)Tweak the wings. “Take the back edge of the wings and bend them up between your fingertips a little bit,” says Blackburn. “This will hold up the nose.” 3)Throw evenly. Give the plane an easy and level throw and it will fly straight. An aeronautical engineer, Ken Blackburn, holds the world-record for keeping a single-sheet paper airplane in flight indoors (27.6 seconds).
