We love our Meyer Prep Faculty and Staff! We look forward to introducing you to a new staff member each week so that you can see the dedicated, smiling faces of Meyer Prep.
This week, meet Mrs. Adrienne Turk. Mrs. Turk teaches Kindergarten-8th Grade Art and our Visual Arts Elective.
Where are you from?
I live in Florida now, but I will always be a New Yorker.
What is something you love to do outside of school?
I love to read about art, go see art and I love to make art. I am also an Adjunct Professor at Palm Beach State College and I currently have 2 new lockdown inspired works on display in a Faculty Exhibition at the Lake Worth campus.
What is one of your personal goals?
I would love to eat my way through Paris and to see the Mona Lisa when the world opens up again. And a Ph.D. in art history would be nice too.
Where's your 'happy place'?
My happy place is my state of mind when I am participating in the artistic process. Anytime I can be in the artmaking moment is when I am most at peace. This is why I love to teach art as much as making art.
What is something your students might not know about you?
My spirit animal is a monkey. Monkeys represent curiosity, energy, playfulness, compassion, and creativity. Also, when my daughter (a Meyer graduate) was little, I called her my “Maya Monkey."
