WMSS Art Education
Welcome to the Art Room, where Creativity blooms and everyone is an Artist!
Most students will be coming to Art at least once a week. Check with your child's teacher for the exact schedule, as it can get complicated!
Students 3rd-6th grade will be utilizing Sketchbooks as a valuable tool almost every time they come to the Art Room. If your 3rd grader or above is in need of a new sketchbook, we might have a limited number available. Please email Ms. Lambert at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
There are times when we get very messy, so please make sure your K-2 students bring in a labeled art shirt for their teacher to store for art days.
Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kami Lambert
Art is my passion, so I am thrilled to be the Art Teacher at WMSS! I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art and a Master of Arts in Teaching, both from Colorado College. My specialties in college were in printmaking and sculpture. My Master's research project involved integrating science and art. Therefore, I feel very much at home at our School for Science.
Having worked in Brevard Public Schools for over 25 years, I began teaching in a regular classroom in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. I have been teaching Art since 2000, and I think that my regular classroom experience has made me an even better Art Teacher. In addition, I co-chair the Brevard County Southern Division Art Fair Committee. I truly believe that I have the best job in the school! Creating art with children--what could be better?
I am married to my friend Pieter Cronje, who, originally from South Africa, recently obtained his American citizenship. We have a delightful daughter and a rascally dog, Archibald, a Cairn terrier mix. As a family, we enjoy outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, and boating. In my spare time, I am actively involved with Surfers for Autism, a nonprofit organization dedicated to Autism Awareness and Acceptance, and am on the Board of Directors for SOAK (Supporting Our ASD Kids), a local group that offers support and resources for families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder. Artistically, I love to draw and paint, but am most fond of printmaking and working with clay.
I look forward every year to working with your children as they experiment with a variety of media, discover favorite artists and art forms, and explore new ways to creatively express themselves in the WMSS Art Lab!
