About Me

Hi, my name is Elice Cardenas but most people call me Lisi. I am the new Art Teacher for 2022-2023 school year and I am beyond excited. I have been an artist since I was small. I have gone thru many phases in my art and currently most of what I do is realistic using charcoal powder. Some of the projects we will be working on this year includes clay, wire sculptures, yarn bombing and lots and lots of painting and sketching. 
My desire is to be able to instill in my students the same love and passion for art that others instilled in me when I was small.

Here are a few things about me that aren’t art related
- I was born in Cuba, but I’ve been living in Phoenix since I was 11.
- I was a student at New World when I was 13 and 14.
- I can speak Croatian and currently I’m learning Russian.
- On my free time I enjoy traveling, hiking, camping, reading, photography, watching Netflix, journaling, playing board games with friends and spending time with my husband and our 2 boxer dogs that are literally our babies.
 
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns and thank you for trusting me with your children.
