Mrs. Melissa Knight

My name is Mrs. Melissa Knight and I am in my 3rd year of Teaching with Gainesville ISD.  This is my 15th year of Teaching and I am excited to continue this journey in Art (a passion of mine).  I grew up in Galveston, Texas.  I graduated from Central Methodist College in Fayette, Missouri. 

I currently live in Sadler, Texas (east of Gainesville). I share my house with my husband of 14 years, Chris and our dog, Charlie.  We have several nephews and nieces whom we love on regularly.  We enjoy creating art, swimming, camping, cooking, and fishing!


Students in Art will create art with multiple mediums (materials) using different Artists as inspiration! 

Students will cultimate the end of each project with filling out an Artist Statement about their work.
