I believe in art education that is engaging, equitable, and grounded in an ethics of care. For me, engaging curriculum means collaborating with students in a way that centers them as whole humans.
I scaffold opportunities to develop artistic visions and creative solutions to design problems and I embrace experimentation as essential.
Through reflexive prompts and multimedia experiences, my approach supports students to learn about themselves, other artists, and the world.
I invite students to pursue their interests and, in exposing them to new ways of engaging with materials, ideas, and relationships, I support them to expand their interests, deepen their skillsets, and approach life with care and curiosity.
In my classroom, students build motor skills and critical thinking skills.
They experience the social and emotional benefits of artmaking individually and in community.
I believe art education can inspire students in all aspects of their lives.
