Hannah Koh

Hannah will be joining the WCHS team and teaching Intro to Art, Advanced Art, AP Studio Art, Digital Design, and Yearbook.

I have been teaching high school for 7 years, and love it! I have my BA in Bible and Theology from Biola, my teaching license for Art from UCLA, and am currently working on my MA in Bible and Theology at Western Seminary in Portland. I love teaching at a Christian school because it allows the unique freedom to teach and create art with joy, purpose and meaning as artists ourselves created in God’s image.

Doodle 4 Google

Posted on:

Art students participated in the National Doodle for Google competition where any K-12 student can submit a creative Google design for a chance to win prizes and have their doodle on google.com. Doodles must fit this years contest theme: What I See for the Future. Introduction, Advanced and AP Studio Art students brainstormed ideas as a class and then created their futuristic designs with applied markers, pencils, pen, watercolor, and colored pencils. A total of 53 students will be recognized and announced by March 1, 2017.

From Google:

At Google, we think about what’s next. We aim to make the future world a better place by building technology, investing in initiatives and making the Internet more accessible for everyone.

With out 9th annual Doodle 4 Google contest we’re asking kids to imagine what possibilities await in the years to come and to represent that vision through their art. In other words, we’re asking that this year’s doodles explain “What I see for the future…”
