Teaching Artist Statement

I believe in the emotional healing & constructive side of art and what can come from conversations. I enjoy teaching the process of seeing and learning what art can do but also how to view art differently. Teaching principles of art are important yet the pieces of emotion and critical thinking skills when applied to art can be more effective.

Explore and Nurture Creativity in the classroom

I enjoy working with all ages teaching the process of seeing and learning what art can do with an individual. Intuitively learning to hear and see what the process can do but also how to view art differently. I believe my work and working with persons brings an energy that allows individuals to see themselves deeper but the world around them with more clarity. I believe the way I teach art breaks barriers down and open possibility that may not have been before.
