Meet Ms. Lopez
Hello! I am the Lead Art teacher at A.O.C. I was born in Ecuador and grew up in Queens, NY. I graduated from Queens College with a degree in Art. I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Art Education. I have been teaching art for the past 8 years. I love teaching art because it combines two things that I feel passionate about, art and education.

Meet Ms. Grace
Hey AOC! I can't wait to share another wonderful Art year with you all. I was born and raised in The Bronx. I am currently pursuing a BFA degree and have been teaching for 7 years in various institutions such as Studio in a school. This is my fourth year at A.O.C. I treasure the fact that I work with students to revisit all of their academic challenges everyday through a creative lens. It gives them new ideas, confidence and a sense of accomplishments. "Being creative is not a hobby; It is a way of Life".
