Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ms. Kempfer and this is will be my sixth year at SCCA. I am very excited to teach Studio Art Fundamentals again this year for college credit. I am also looking forward to my second year of Set Design
I am a native of Porterville and attended PHS. I received my Bachelor degree in Art from UCLA and later received my Master degree in Art Therapy from Cal State LA. I am a tenured teacher at Summit and love working here. I have also studied in Sweden, the Czech Republic, and New York.
In my spare time I like to paint and travel. My preferred medium is oil, but I’m happy to use house paint too. I lived in Europe for over 9 amazing years and I’m currently happy to be home.
I am looking forward to this year, as I have a lot of new ideas and activities planned. I love working with the students and helping them learn how to take creative risks and grow from the experience.
In addition to Art 101 and Set Design, I teach Beginning Art and Yearbook for both High School and Middle School.
If you need to contact me for any reason please do not hesitate. I am happy to speak to parents/guardians about issues, ideas and suggestions. I’m looking forward to teaching your child and helping them learn the power of visual language.
