Degrees and Certifications:

Dani Hartle



        Hello, my name is Danielle Hartle, [your students will know me as Ms. Dani or Ms. Hartle] and this is my 3rd year as the Art specialist at Chelsea Heights Elementary! I have a Bachelor's in Visual Arts as well as a Masters of Visual Arts Education from UMN [University of Minnesota Twin Cities].  When I am not at Chelsea Heights I like to create both textile and painted works. I also like to go out with my family on hikes, This summer I went up to the Northwest corner of Minnesota and went to multiple state parks in the area.

        It is a privilege to be a member of the Chelsea Heights Community and I thoroughly enjoy making creative explorations with our talented students.  I believe that The Arts are essential to all people and all cultures in this 21st Century world. Because of this belief, it is important to make all of my students feel welcome and comfortable to create art. A quote that has become a large part of my teaching Philosophy is from Bob Ross 

“We Don’t Make Mistakes, Just Happy Little Accidents”
