Ms. Christa Turek

Ms.Turek's Art Class!

    Welcome to the art room! My name is Christa Turek and I am the art teacher at both Old Mill and West Belmar Elementary Schools for grades K-5.  Throughout the year, we will be doing lots of amazing projects with oil pastels, clay, and paint! I look forward to working with you! My extra help days are Wednesdays 3:35-4:00pm. If you would like some extra art time or want to catch up on some projects!


Continue sending in those sanitizing wipes so that we can limit the number of times we visit the sink during art time! And if you have any leftover BLACK Sharpies lying around, feel free to send them to the art room!





Be sure check out our school's virtual museum on If you aren't connected already, send me an email so that I can help you create your own personal login and ArtSonia account for your child.  You can view all the work they've done this year just with the click of a button! Don't have the permission slip? No problem! Just email me at [email protected].     


   On this site you can view your children's atwork from the entire school year and order fun gifts and keepsakes for your family members which make great Christmas, Birthday, Mother's and Father's Day presents! 20% of the proceeds go directly to our school! No pressure to buy though.  If you wish, you can share your children's beautiful work with family and friends. Make sure to comment on the work as well so that your children know how proud you are of their hard work!
