Welcome to my website, my name is Mrs. Lacey McKown. This is my ninth year of teaching high school art. I am excited to be BACK at East Knox after teaching at River View the past five years. My husband, Wess McKown, is also an East Knox High School teacher. Mr. McKown teaches government and personal finance. We have a 1 year old son, Oakey. I grew up in Licking County and I went to Utica High School. I received my master's degree in Art Education from The Ohio State University.
I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to be back at East Knox and be a part of this wonderful community. I am teaching 7th grade art, 8th grade art, Art I, Art II, Art III/IV and 3D Design this year. I enjoy many forms of art. My favorite type of art is 3D, but I enjoy drawing, painting, photography, computer art, video editing, ceramics, woodshop, glass art, and mixed media, such as encaustic wax painting, needle felting, paper quilling and much more!
I'm always extremely excited to see my student's new artwork! I love learning and growing with such talented and bright young individuals. I can't wait to see what creative ideas they have next!
If you would like to talk about your student’s work or if you have any questions at all, please contact me. Thank you very much!
