About Mrs. Sylvester

Mrs. Sylvester has a B.S. in Art from Pacific Union College. She has worked for many years as a fine and graphic artist. She paints in a variety of media including dry pastel, as well as oil and watercolor. She also works in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. She is now using these skills as the Yearbook Advisor.

Learning to draw, paint, and sculpt, as well as studying art history helps develop creativity, critical thinking, and spatial intelligence. All of these qualities are vital to a student's success in the 21st century.

Art 1 is a beginning drawing class, and is a prerequisite for other courses taught in the DO Art Department.

AP Art History is taught in the fall with review sessions available in the spring before the AP test in May of 2018. This class can be taken to fulfill the A-G Visual and Fine Arts requirement.

Yearbook is a club as well as a class. Students enroll for both semesters of each school year. While the number of students on the staff is small, they do an amazing job of compiling high school memories for Del Oro High School students.
