Meet the Teacher

My name is Mr. Jessie Welch and I am happy to be teaching Art for a 4th year at Walker Gamble Elementary School. I am a 2009 graduate of Francis Marion University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education. I received my Masters of Education in Teaching and Learning in 2020. I have been teaching Art for 10 years and have worked at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Each year brings new challenges and provides opportunities to nurture our students' understanding, interest, and involvement in the arts. My goal is to create true, well rounded, 21st century learners.  


A multitude of painting techniques are introduced through engaging activities and lessons. 


Students are allowed to let their creativity flow while learning the basics of clay construction.


Basic drawing techniques help build a stable foundation for a future career in the arts.
