About


Gesso:  a white paint mixture used to prepare a canvas for painting.

Just as gesso is a foundation for a painting; art at an early age can create a foundation for lifelong creativity and exploration not only with art but in a child's daily life.  Gessokids aims to provide art projects that encompass other school subjects, simple projects to do at home and art inspiration from around the web.  I hope this provides a resource for teachers, parents and children alike!  So lets start making!

About Miss Thrun

I’m Miss Thrun but most of my students call me Miss T.   I teach Pre-K to 8th grade art at St. Christopher School and I am entering my 5th year of teaching this year!  I graduated from Buffalo State College with a B.S. in Art Education in December of 2010 and my Master's in May 2015.

Art has been something that I have been compelled to make and learn about since elementary school and my visit to a Claude Monet exhibit at the Albright Knox around age 8.  I love to provide my students with authentic and exciting art activities that span world cultures, different mediums and much more! 

In my spare time, I love to crochet, play the occasional video game and snuggle with my two cats, Alexander and Aubrey.
