Veronica Nelson » Welcome!


Welcome to Elementary Art! I am very excited to begin a new year of artistic adventures with our PRA artists! This will be the start of my 9th year with our PRA community. To share a little about myself, I have a bachelors in Art Education from Colorado State University and a Masters from the University of Northern Colorado in Art Education.  Working with young people has always been a sincere passion of mine, and of course, exploring the vast realm of art.  We have a lot of fun and engaging art projects planned and I look forward to embracing the artistic process and building relationships with your children. Cheers to another fabulous year here at PRA!    


Original Works Artwork
Original Works Update!
For our fabulous families who partook in our Elementary Fundraiser, Original Works, your products will still arrive! However, most likely not during this school year:) I did send out orders before break, since then the Original Works facility has closed. They did receive our orders and will process them once they re-open. So your patience and understanding is very much appreciated! 
Hey, it'll be a wonderful way to start next year off!
Please reach out with any questions:)

Hey PRA Artists and Families:)
I wanted to communicate with everyone that I will be updating my weekly projects/videos on my google classroom site ONLY, for Kindergarten, First, Second, Third, Fourth & Fifth Grade. Keeping up with both is too much:) I'm always available through email and our weekly office hours through google meet on Wed. 3-4pm.  Thanks Team!! 

Joining Miss Nelson's Art Google Classroom

Hello Wonderful PRA Artists!
During our Distant Learning Extravaganza, I'll be posting art project assignments on my website as well as google classroom. Google classroom will be a nice way to communicate and share art! I encourage this form of connection with my Third, Fourth and Fifth graders, as for Kinder, First and Second, it's totally optional:)

PRA's Annual All School Art Show
Get excited PRA! Our annual All School Art Show is just a few weeks away. On Thursday, February 13th, our very own budding artists will have their work displayed throughout the entire school. This is a great opportunity to peruse the hallways admiring the creative expression of our students, who continue to impress me with every creation!
