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!
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.
