My name is Christian Pierre, and I'm so excited to be Century's new art teacher. I have been an artist my entire life and an art teacher for almost 20 years. I began teaching career as an artist in residence for Duval County Schools in Jacksonville, Florida. I have taught middle school art at LaVilla School of the Arts and James Weldon Johnson College preparatory Middle school since 2001. I attended the university of Florida and the School of Visual Arts, NY and I currently have a Bachelors of Art from Excelsior College. I am also a professional artist and my artwork has been on many textbook covers including Art text books! I love to paint and draw people, animals and cities. I have been in dozens of art shows in galleries and museums. It is my great passion to teach young people about the world of art. We will be growing together while we make our hybrid learning environment amazing and creative.
