Ms. Anrico Art

Mrs. Anrico


My name is Abigail Anrico. I was born in Pennsylvania and moved around a lot as a kid. My family settled here in 2002 when I was a sophomore in high school. After graduating I attended Pikes Peak Community College and received my associate degree and then went on to CSU-Pueblo to receive my bachelor's degree in Art Education. I am so excited to work at CSCA as the K-8 Art Teacher. I have worked in another charter school and I love the close-knit community within the charter school realm. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two kids. We love to go camping, watch movies, read, and spend quality time eating dinner together every night. I’m very blessed to have them in my life.  

I believe with all my heart that art is important and should be taught at every age level. Children need art to help with fine motor skills, igniting left-brain activity, and critical thinking skills. It allows students to think outside the box and problem-solve. Art is involved in so many fields, such as graphic design, advertising, video game design, education, illustration, etc. 

I do not believe in grading students at this age by their artistic abilities, but rather by their following of directions, applying each required step to a project, giving 100% effort, and using their time wisely. I believe that not judging a student by whether they can draw isn’t healthy at this age. Students need encouragement, support, and guidance. I hope to be that person for each and every one of my students in art class.

As Vincent van Gogh said,
"I am always doing what I cannot do yet, in order to learn how to do it."
