NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (WLNE)- A North Kingstown art teacher was recognized nationally during Teacher Appreciation Week.
Robin Kasparian, an art teacher at Hamilton Elementary, won the 2022 Artsonia Art Education Leadership Award.
Kasparian was one of only 15 teachers nationwide to win the award.
The award honors pioneers in the art education community who continuously inspire their peers and engage students.
“I spend hours every day ensuring that my art room runs smoothly, is organized and clean, and my students have the most cool and compelling lessons chock full of interesting art history, color theory, elements and principles of design, new techniques, and creative expression. When others notice all of the hard work and effort I put in to make my students feel appreciated and loved, I feel truly appreciated and valued,” Kasparian said.
