Mrs. Courtney Abruzzo

Welcome to Holy Family Grade School Visual Arts!

My name is Courtney Abruzzo and I am so happy to be here. I’m returning to the grade school level after five years teaching Studio Art, Art History and Ceramics at Providence High School in Burbank. Before that, I spent fifteen years teaching visual arts at Saint Finbar School in Burbank.

I received my Bachelor’s degree from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and my Social Emotional Arts Certification from UCLA. I firmly believe in the power of an arts education to enhance student learning. Research has shown that a visual arts education helps students achieve academically by helping motor skills, promoting self-directed learning, sharpening critical and creative thinking and increasing awareness and empathy for others. I can’t wait to embark on this journey with you and your children and hope to see you around the art room!

Best,

Mrs. Courtney Abruzzo
