3-D Art Teacher-Janine Dykes

Janine Dykes

I am the 3-D Art teacher at Kerr High School. I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Art Studies at The University of Texas at Austin, and my Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I am a professional artist and have had my artworks shown in exhibitions in galleries in Houston, Austin, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Dallas, Fresno, and New York City. 

My students experience access to many different sculpture materials and techniques and have a choice over the subject matter for project-based learning. My students have opportunities to go on field trips to local art museums with me every year. My visiting artist program allows my students to have hands-on workshops with local visual artists in my classroom. My students participate in art contests every year and continue to win local, state, and national awards in the visual arts. I have enjoyed taking students to Carnegie Hall in New York City to receive national medals from the Scholastic Art Awards.

High school students benefit from experience and exposure to the visual arts to enhance their abstract, non-linear problem-solving skill set.

2D Art Teacher-Keri Reynolds

Keri Reynolds

Welcome Kerr Tigers!

I have taught art in Alief ISD for over a decade and teach a variety of studio art courses including Art I, Drawing, Photography, Electronic Media, Painting, and AP art courses. I serve as the Lead High School Art Specialist for Alief ISD. I am also an active member of the Texas Art Education Association and the National Art Education Association and serve as a Juror for the Visual Arts Scholastic Event.

Throughout the creative process, students are challenged to develop multiple solutions to problems and to utilize art as a vehicle to initiate change and inspire others. As quoted by painter Edgar Degas, “Art is not what you see but what you make others see”.
