About Me

Hello, my name is Ms. Summers and I’m the Art teacher at Chesterbrook in Cary. Art has been my lifelong passion and I’m happy to be able to share this joy with my students! I have been a member of the CBA family since 2012. I went to college at Susquehanna University in PA and studied abroad in Florence, Italy. I’m a professional artist and dancer, so I’m always on the go! I hold shows, teach workshops, give private lessons, and perform all over North Carolina! I share these experiences with my students by offering different after school clubs throughout the year.


Our School

Students have Art twice a week and learn many things in the Art room. Students work with a variety of materials including oil pastel, watercolor paint, charcoal, paper mache, clay, photography, digital design, and so much more. Children develop technical skills that help them to become better artists. We also learn about Art History, making projects that reflect different artists, time periods, and visual traditions.


At Chesterbrook Academy, we take pride in the Arts. Students have several opportunities throughout the year to show off their art, including a winter art show.
