    High School Art [9-12]

    Art 1, Art 2, Art 3&4, Pre-AP/AP Studio Art 2D

         This is Mrs. Robinson first year in the art department.  She worked in the English department before joining the art department.   Before falling in love with teaching, she was a TV news anchor and reporter.  This is her 4th year as a teacher at Mabank.    Mrs. Robinson stills works with students in an English capacity through coaching UIL.  She coaches both Ready Writing and Copy Editing.  As a first year Ready Writing coach, two of her students made it to the regional level with one advancing to the state competition in Austin.

         Mrs. Robinson has been married for 19 years and has a daughter at the high school.  She grew up in the area and attended Mabank.  After high school, she earned her undergraduate from The University of Texas at Austin.  She fell into art when she started taking her daughter to art classes.  Since then she has worked in oil painting, acrylic painting, mixed media, but her area of expertise is in soft pastels.  Her pieces are sold in several area galleries and boutiques.  She enjoys sharing her love for art with her students and unlocking their potential by introducing them to new techniques and mediums.
