Matt Brown

  Hello, my name is Matthew Brown.  I am very excited to be the art teacher here at Kenton.  This will be my 5th year in Aurora Public Schools (3rd at Kenton) and my 11th year teaching elementary: in addition to my art teaching experience, I have also taught 4th and 5th grade.  I lived in Italy for 3 years, where I painted and had multiple art exhibitions; before returning to America.  I continue to paint every chance I get, and have started wood working.  In addition to creating art, my wife, son, and I love to travel; both around the US and internationally.  I live a very active life style: snowboarding, biking, running, hiking, and playing soccer. My goal for this year is to continue working on integrating STEM into the art room, creating STEAM – Science,Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. My job is to accelerate the learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by creating an atmosphere of safety and respect, so that every student can feel free to express themselves and their beliefs through any art media. My community needs me to do my job.
