Ms. Formanek

  • Welcome to Art!

    Hello there! My name is Ms. Formanek and this is my first year teaching at Banting. I feel so privileged to be joining the Bobcat team! I am so excited for a school year full of creating art, learning about contemporary artists, and exploring different mediums. 

    About the Teacher

    I was born and raised in Southeastern Wisconsin with my three brothers and my parents. My mom is an art teacher and she inspired me to pursue Art Education! I attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education with a focus in Fiber Arts. I am so thrilled to be joining Banting for my first year of teaching and I can't wait to be apart of the Waukesha community. During my time away from school I am planning my wedding, spending time with my friends and family, knitting, creating art, watching Marvel movies, or doing something active outside with my wonderful fiancé, Jake! I live with my dog Remy, and my two cats, Oswald and Sulley. My favorite place in the world is Disneyland in California, I'm a huge Disney fan!

Favorite Book:

  • My favorite book is Beautiful Oops by Barney Saltzberg. This book is very powerful because it lets young artists know how to take their "oops" and create something beautiful! I love how this book encourages students to look at their mistakes as a new opportunity.
