As a teacher of studio arts I view my job as more than just an educator. I expect my students to become critical thinkers and cultivate their desire for life-long learning and understanding of art. My job is to prepare the students to be professional artists, designers and educators. I push them to develop a dedicated work ethic and encourage an attitude of confidence that anything is possible.
Learning in my classroom, from seminar to foundation level classes, is done through multi-model approach. I ensure the students get a broad overview, covering historical and contemporary issues by presenting information through image lectures, presentations and discussions. I take the role of facilitator in discussions, learning more about the students’ artistic desire allowing me to customize and direct the class activities in directions that will expand their knowledge while capturing their interest.
