Dear Wharton Families,

I have the pleasure of teaching Visual Art to all children in PK-8th grade at Wharton. I have enjoyed my position as an Elementary and Middle School Art teacher with HISD for 10 years. I want to extend to you and your child my warmest welcome into my classroom. 2021 will mark my 7th year here at Wharton, so for many of you I am a familiar face. And I am very excited about working with your child!

My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work alongside them to maximize it. Together we learn about color theory and art movements from Renaissance to current art trends. As I always say “Let’s Make Art!

Estimadas familias de Wharton:

Tengo el placer de enseñar arte visual a todos los niños de PK a 8vo grado en Wharton. He disfrutado de mi puesto como maestra de arte de primaria y secundaria en HISD durante 10 años. Quiero darles a usted y a su hijo mi más cordial bienvenida a mi salón de clases. 2021 marcará mi séptimo año aquí en Wharton, por lo que para muchos de ustedes soy una cara familiar. ¡Y estoy muy emocionado de trabajar con su hijo!

Mi filosofía de aprendizaje es que cada niño es único. Uno de mis trabajos como maestro es ayudar a su hijo a descubrir su individualidad y trabajar junto a ellos para maximizarla. Juntos aprendemos sobre la teoría del color y los movimientos artísticos desde el Renacimiento hasta las tendencias artísticas actuales. Como siempre digo "¡Hagamos arte!

  • Trashion Show

    I would like to invite all students to join in creating their own sculptural fashion piece from recycled items, or from just plain old trash. Once you have completed your outfit, just take a short video of you walking down the "runway" wearing your "Trashion" masterpiece, and send it to me in an email.

    How about a dress made with a deck of cards?

    How about a shirt covered with old chip bags?

    How about a pair of shorts covered in amazon bubble wrap envelopes?

  • Wharton Student Remote ART Masterpieces

    I would love to share any art masterpieces you have been able to create during your free time. 

    Please feel free to email me any art you would like to share:

    vrickman@houstonisd.org

    And I will create a Wharton Virtual Art Gallery!

    This piece called "Crystal Cave" was created by Remy Burgess, from Ms. Pardo's 3rd grade class, using an application called Procreate.

  • Houston Art Car Parade

    ART CAR

    Pre-COVID-19, we were planning on starting a Wharton Art Car for the Houston Art Car Parade. With my family and friends I have participated in the Art Car Parade for the past 20 years. And when the opportunity came up for a van to be donated to our school, I immediately thought of how fun it would be to share the Art Car experience with our Wharton Family.

    The Houston Art Car Parade was to take place this upcoming weekend, April 18. So, to replace the parade with some art fun we are going to have a contest for next year's Art Car Parade. Your job is to design a "doable" or even "challenging" Wharton Art Car/Van design. I will post an outline drawing of our donated Van. Your job is to print the outline, draw it yourself, or even trace the drawing from your computer screen. Then embellish your Van drawing in whatever way your artistic mind can come up with: draw us your Wharton Art Car/Van.

  • Houston's First Art Bike Parade

    Art Bike Parade

    As well, pre-COVID-19, many HISD schools were planning on being a part of Houston's First Art Bike Parade.

    HISD provided a bike to many schools throughout the district, and at Wharton we recieved 2 bikes. And again, in lieu of no parade, we are going to have a contest for next year's Art Bike Parade. Your job is to design a "doable" or even "challenging" Wharton Art Bike design. I will post an outline drawing of our bike. Your job is to print the outline, draw it yourself, or even trace the drawing from your computer screen. Then embellish your Bike drawing in whatever way your artistic mind can come up with: draw us your Wharton Art Bike.
