Ms. Susan Lynn Nieske

Hello Artists, students, and families! I am so happy to be teaching art and creativity here at Harris Road Middle School in Cabarrus County Schools! I hold an undergraduate degree in Marketing from Bryant University as well as a Master's degree in Art Education from Anna Maria College.  I was born and raised in Western Massachusetts where I developed a lifelong love of art and the landscape. My passion is focused on two dimensional art specifically mixed media, drawing and painting. Prior to relocating to North Carolina, I also had an independent business as an artist and teacher holding workshops all around New England.  I am passionate about teaching people how to express their ideas and feelings about the world through their art.  It is my greatest intention to help each art student grow in technique but also in their ability to give something positive to the world.  I believe the ideal environment for this learning and growth is through a comprehensive artistic education.

 All curriculum and weekly sequences of instruction can be found in the appropriate class Canvas course!
