Mr. Garrett Love

I'm Garrett Love, and I am excited to start my twentieth year of teaching at FVES. I believe that the arts are essential to education because they instill skills in creativity and problem solving that are needed in the world today. I enjoy guiding students through this process to create exciting works of art.

I grew up in Statesville, NC and attended Appalachian State University where I developed a love for the outdoors. Our family enjoys anything to do with nature such as hiking, biking, and paddle boarding just to name a few. My wife and I have four children, a dog named Olive, and Pete the cat.
