Classroom

"There is always some measure of adventure in the meeting of mind and universe, and this adventure is, in its measure, imagination"

John Dewey, Art As Experience, p. 278

 

As a visual arts teacher, I am able to both facilitate and observe the power of imagination, creativity and experimentation of individuals who are willing to take risks and master mediums. I have the honor of educating and encouraging students on a daily basis through the visual arts; it is an experience unlike anything I have ever been giving the opportunity to take part in, and for this I am grateful.

 

I am an active part of the classroom environment and take pride in the leadership that I am able to provide through a variety of mediums. I am strongly convinced that the experiences we have in and outside of the classroom shapes who we are as individuals. I believe in the pragmatic philosophy of aesthetics, which supports that art should be a part of everyone's creative lives and that the integrity of art, culture, and everyday experiences should be encouraged and accessible to all members of society.
