Mrs. Van Buhler

I was born and raised in Tempe, and continue to live there today. Besides art I also enjoy playing tennis, movies, gardening, woodworking, spending time outdoors, and traveling. Being in nature inspires me, and I find that most of my work contains some nature element to it. As of 2019, my new favorite hobby is being a mom to my sweet son, Logan. 
Educational Philosophy:
Every student has the ability to create successful artworks, but it all starts with EFFORT. 
Education Background and Experience: 
I have been creating for as long as I can remember so I knew my career would need to include art. I love the fact that being a fine arts teacher allows me to combine my love for art with my enjoyment of helping students learn.
