Mrs. Besant

Welcome to Mrs. Besant's webpage! I am an art teacher and this is my third year at Harvey Austin #97. I am so proud to be working for the Buffalo Public Schools!  I have been teaching for 19 years. I am excited to set up this page so students and parents are able to communicate with me about art projects and assignments to keep creating whether at school or at home!

I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy! I miss teaching you everyday. Please check out the links by grade level for interesting ideas and creative projects while you are home! All of these ideas and more are in your art course in schoology as well. Feel free to contact me at with any questions.
