FA Team


  • The fine arts department at Lovett is made up of a group of professional teachers who bring to the table a wealth of hands-on experience, diverse backgrounds, and research-based educational practices. Our team is lead by grade chair and Vocal Music director, Katherine Martin, who has been with Lovett since 2001.  Vanessa Lin is our orchestra director, and Ali Jackson is our band director.  Rounding out our ancillary team is Hayley Boardman in Art, Abe Ruiz in PE, and Anne Warner in Library.

    With more than 75 years of combined experience in education, you can be sure that your child will participate in mindful, rigorous learning in whichever fine arts classroom they choose. The team holds nine degrees and more than ten diverse educational certifications, ensuring that your child will be supported both artistically and in the core curriculum. Whether its coaching, tutoring, teaching privately, or performing, our team is very active in the Meyerland and surrounding  communities.


    The different programs participate in many activities such as All-City (band, orchestra, choir), the Art Car parade, Name that Book, Odyssey of the Mind, various track meets, musical festivals and more. Our team members chair various HISD committees, summer camps, and festivals. The team is an integral part of  campus technical support and most use technology both in the classroom and communicating with parents.


    The Lovett Fine Arts team offers Art, Music, and PE for weekly core enrichment instruction. Students will have Art and Library once a week and PE and Music twice a week. At the beginning of the school year, students in 1st-5th grade choose from Band, Vocal Music, and Orchestra.
