Welcome to the Visual Arts Class! I am excited for this new adventure of teaching both middle and high school students this year. I love students to engage in art in which they learn about themselves, their peers and people, faces and places near and far. Students will explore how art plays an integral role in our everyday life. Art is what we use to record history, express ourselves, and aid in cultivating empathy through activism. Today, we are living in a very visual world and it is important that students develop strong visual literacy skills. Visual literacy is when one is able to interpret the messages that are not written but presented using signs, symbols, icons, and colors. Visual literacy assists us in understanding the written messages encouraging us to think, understand, and make choices inside the classroom and beyond. The students will engage in the art making process as it connects to real world application. What that means is creating artwork that is meaningful and accomplishes a purpose, whether personal or for others. So, what would the world be without art? PRETTY BORING!

Bachelor or Fine Arts AP Certified
Hey RCTCM family! My name is Rebecca Freeman and I have been teaching art in Richmond County for 18 years. I first started teaching at Spirit Creek Middle, then spent quite some time at Pine Hill Middle and currently this will be my third year at RCTCM. I attended the University of Georgia and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I started my educational career by way of substitute teaching, then received my certificate through the TAPP program. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, sewing, listening to music, riding my bike around the neighborhood and exercising in the park. I am a mother of two "grown" children and, although I am still a mom, I can now consider them two of my closest friends. Currently, I am trying to learn Spanish, which has been a bit of a challenge, but I will not give up! I look forward to learning together with everyone this year! Stay Safe.
