I graduated from Shawnee Mission West High School in Overland Park, Kansas.
After high school I started my higher education at ESU for Business Administration/Marketing Management.
Two kids and a few years later, I graduated in 2011 from Johnson County Community College with associate degrees in Interior Design, Entreprenuership, Liberal Arts, and General Science. From there I returned to Emporia State University for a bachelor degree in Art Education, graduating in December of 2016.
My kids are “near” grown, both in their mid 20’s. Christopher lives in Lawrence and Elizabeth lives in Kansas City.
My fur babies are Cami Chameleon and Nugget (RIP).
I also have a “grandcat” named Cowboy. He is my daughters’ wild grey tabby cat.
Hi I’m Annie Courtney. I’m excited to start my second year at Anderson County. I teach art to junior and senior high students. Our intro classes cover all the art skill basics, popular mediums, artists and art history. Our upper level classes include Drawing, Painting, Ceramics, Mixed/Multi Media. An Advance art class is available for Juniors and Seniors that have taken several art classes prior. Advance students have a thourough review of art skills before starting individual projects. Art club is available to senior high students.
In my spare time I like to work on my own artwork of painting, printmaking, drawing, metalswork and sculpture.
