Winoka Turin, Art Teacher

Winoka Turin has taught art to elementary and middle school children for over 28 years. Winoka received her bachelor’s degree in Developmental Psychology and her multiple subject teaching credential from UC Santa Barbara.  She also has CLAD Certification from UC San Diego.

Lessons give students an understanding of many mediums including paper, watercolors, chalk, pastels and mixed media.  Students develop skills in composition, perspective, tints and shade, positive and negative space, portraits, and use of line.

Parents are encouraged to sign up to volunteer in art, particularly in the younger grades. Sign-up sheets are available at the start of the school year; Winoka can also be contacted directly if you are interested in volunteering at any time during the year.
