Welcome to Art at W.J. Murphy Elementary! Go Mustangs!

My name is Michelle Turek and I am the art teacher here at Murphy. This is my 10th year teaching in RLAS #116. I am so excited about the upcoming school year and getting to know you! 

The art classroom is an exciting place where students are to learn, grow, discuss, imagine, invent, experiment,and to be themselves. 

Want to know what is going on in our classroom? Please visit our website:

W.J. Murphy Elementary Art

We are a community of learners! I love watching students challenge themselves and set new goals each day. They can be leaders and express themselves in creative ways, making innovative connections between other academic subjects. I enjoy observing and guiding students in experimenting with a large variety of media and discovering their individual creative strengths and challenges.

I received my bachelor's and master's of science degrees in Art Education from Northern Illinois University. I also have a degree in Illustration from The American Academy of Art Chicago. I love learning about all different styles and forms of art. I really love photography, museums, drawing, painting, printmaking, and digital technology! 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me at mturek@rlas-116.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Have a good day! 

Mrs. Turek
