M. Bolen
Hi,
  I'm Mr. Bolen, the High School Fine Arts Teacher at Noel C. Taylor Learning Academy. I teach Art I, Art II, Illustration, and Crafts. I studied Art and Art Education at Virginia Western Community College and at Radford University.
  
  I believe, at it's best, that art can enrich information, that it can add impact to ideas, and that it can bring learning to life. I also believe that art serves as a unique avenue for exploring information in new and refreshing ways. My goal is to use this versatility to allow art to be both a creative outlet and an academic tool in which other learning will be supplemented and reinforced.

"The principles of true art is not to portray, but to evoke"
