Mrs. Candace Eriksson
I am the art teacher at Gravette Upper Elementary and at Glenn Duffy Elementary. This is my 13th year of teaching with 10 years in Gravette. It is a privilege to be part of such at awesome community.
In 2001 I graduated from Ouachita Baptist University with a BSE in Art Education. After college I got my Masters from Missouri State while working as an artist for a fine arts conservation company. Upon completion of my masters I began my first years of teaching at Rogers, Ar and then in Georgia. I am so happy to have ended up in the Gravette community.
When I am not teaching I enjoy taking care of my husband and two kids. We love to spend time together cooking, hiking, and playing with our dogs. I also spend a lot of time working in the medium of pastel and I especially love painting portraits.
I am looking forward to a fantastic school year and the opportunity to create art with your child!!
