Teaching Artist Statement

I specialize in painting in watercolor and acrylic. I teach art foundations, painting and drawing techniques, and welcome integration of the host teacher’s curriculum that can include science, social studies, or math.
Painting provides the opportunity to articulate ideas and express emotions. My goal is to inspire the imagination and enhance student learning with an unforgettable arts experience.

Explore and Nurture Creativity in the classroom

• Experience levels with art vary, so my goal is provide both group and individual instruction adapted to those ability levels.
• My goal is to have a healthy balance between ‘how to’ instruction and creative freedom. Not everyone can or wants to color within the lines and that is perfectly fine!
• Breakthroughs are a trademark to any residency. A breakthrough can mean different things to different students, but I try to keep an eye out for leaps in progress and make sure to encourage these esteem builders.

Residency Projects

Puzzle Mural - Public art at your school created by your students. This is a large scale mural made up of panels that the students design, paint, and help install. Art foundations are covered as well as color theory, emotions, and symbols. The mural theme can be designed to fit individual schools needs / curriculum areas.

Watercolor & Art History - In this multi day residency students explore a new famous artist from history and paint a watercolor based off of one of the well known works. Artists include Monet, Van Gogh, Homer, and Picasso. Students learn the style that the artist worked in and practice both abstract and representational painting techniques.
