Meet Mrs. Downes
I graduated from Columbus State University in May 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Art Education. I was born into a family of artists; My grandmother was a portrait painter, my grandfather is a designer and painter, and my mother currently teaches art in Russell County. Art is in my blood! I married my best friend in 2014 and we have two babies together- Alfred and Mozzie, our spoiled rotten pit bulls. In my spare time I enjoy painting, doing anything crafty, being outdoors, and spending time with my friends and family. I began my teaching career 7 years ago in Phenix City, teaching high school Art. This year is my 5th year teaching grades K-5 Art here at Hannan. I am so excited for this school year and am looking forward to inspiring creativity in our young Hannan artists! I hope you find my website resourceful and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
