Mrs. Candace Eriksson

I am the art teacher at Gravette Upper Elementary and at Glenn Duffy Elementary.  This is my 14th year of teaching with 11 years in Gravette.  It is a privilege to be a part of such an awesome community.

In 2001 I graduated from Ouachita Baptist University with a BSE in Art Education.  After graduation I began my Masters at Missouri State while I worked as an artist for a fine art conservation company.  Upon completion of my masters I began my teaching career teaching in Rogers, AR and also in Georgia. I am happy to have ended up teaching in the Gravette community.

When I am not teaching I enjoy taking care of my husband and two kids.  We enjoy cooking, hiking, and playing with our dogs together.  I also spend a lot of time working in the medium of pastels and I especially love painting pastel portraits.

I am looking forward to this school year and the opportunity to create art with your child!!
