Scott Maynard is both the K-12 art teacher and the Director of Fine Arts at Faith Christian School in Roanoke, Virginia. During his tenure at Faith, Scott has made significant adjustments in his teaching methods as he came to a deeper understanding of how art instruction could better reflect a distinctly Christian classical approach. Scott believes his most recent adjustments have had the greatest impact on his students and he is eager to share his journey with other teachers and administrators. Scott believes his approach can help inform teachers in other disciplines. Scott’s “Slow Looking” course is a required component of Faith’s teacher training program. Scott has taught art K-5 for four years at Lansing Christian School in Lansing, Michigan, in addition to his fourteen years at Faith Christian School. He has an Associates Degree in Commercial Art from Oakland Community College in West Bloomfield, Michigan, as well as a B.S. in Art Education from Taylor University in Upland, Indiana. Scott is married to the love of his life, Deborah, and they have six children who are mostly grown. He loves to teach art and to create artwork of his own.
Scott Maynard is a workshop speaker at this year’s conference.
