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!!
