Welcome to Art
Hi! My name is Melissa Riley and this is my 25th year teaching Art at St Pius!! I earned both my Bachelor and Masters degrees in Art Education from The College of Saint Rose. After all these years I still love teaching art! I teach the 3 and 4 year old Prek classes as well as the 3rd thru 8th graders. Teaching such a wide age range is very exciting. Not only do I get to know the children really well, it is so rewarding to watch them as their creativity and skills grow over the years.
When I am not teaching I keep busy with my family. My husband and I enjoy watching our two son's sporting events, going on bike rides and vacationing at Loon Lake. When I am creative at home I make signs to give as gifts, design floral bouquets for special occasions and give painting parties for kids.
