Candace Bailey







I am Candace R. Bailey, and I have been teaching Visual Art at AHS since the school opened in 2000. I graduated from UGA and have a BFA in Art Education Pre-K through 12th and a BFA in Fine Crafts with a concentration in Fabric Design. I studied Fabric Design under the instructor Professor Ed. Lambert at UGA. I also have a minor in Art Therapy, and studied under the instructor Professor Dr. Kent at UGA as well. I attended Athens Tech to study the Retail Marketing Program. I have also taught art at Colham Ferry Elementary in Oconee County and Feagin Mill Middle school in Houston County, Georgia. I was born in Winder and raised in Oconee County. I graduated from Oconne County High School. I currently live in Oconee County, but have lived in Barrow County for 4 years and Perry Ga. for 2 years. I have 5 children, one 6 year old grand daughter, and so excited to have 2 more grand children on the way in March of 2017. My passions in life are my children and art. My motto is: Art is Life, and Life is Art.
