Degrees and Certifications:
Hello everyone! My name is Holly Potts and I am SO excited to be your Art Teacher! I attended college and played soccer at the Savannah College of Art and Design and transferred to Appalachian State University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Art Education with a minor in jewelry making and fiber arts. This will be my third year teaching art at the elementary level. I am also a goldsmith and enjoy creating jewelry in my free time.
I grew up in Raleigh and have lived in many places, like Italy and Scotland, and closer to home, like Nashville, TN, and Savannah, GA. I am now back in Raleigh with my 7-year-old husky, Jasper. Besides art, spending time with my friends and family, traveling, cooking, going to concerts, exercising, and being outside in nature are what make me happy.
I am thrilled to join the Lead Mine Family and in our art room, we will take creative chances, make happy accidents, and get messy!
